The introduction of a sulfur function into Schöllkopf’s bislactim ether was carried out to synthesize the diastereomers of (3S)-2,5-diethoxy-3,6-dihydro-3-isopropyl-6-methylsulfanylpyrazine. Stereoselectivity in the alkylation of the anions derived from those compounds was examined as a basic study of the synthesis of chiral α-sulfanylamino acids.
