An L-proline-derived imidazolone protected with an N-triethylsilyl (N-TES) group undergoes diastereoselective lithiationelectrophile quench to give C5-substituted products with syn stereochemistry. Unlike the previous N-t-Bu analogues, the N-TES derivatives may be easily N-desilylated to give secondary ureas that serve as precursors to N-phenyl chiral bicyclic guanidines.
