The aza-Diels–Alder reaction of 3-phenylthio-3-sulfolenes with p-toluenesulfonyl isocyanate (PTSI) gave trans-5,6-dihydropyridinones, which upon treatment with NBS afforded the trans-allylic bromides. Hydrolysis of the bromides provided the allylic alcohols with retention of configuration. Further synthetic transformations led to the formal synthesis of pumiliotoxin 251D and awajanomycin. Some related syntheses are also reported.
