A strategy has been developed for stereocontrolled synthesis of nitrogen-substituted quaternary stereogenic centers that utilizes enantioselective addition of diethylzinc to α,β-unsaturated aldehydes and allyl cyanate-to-isocyanate rearrangement as key steps. The power and flexibility of this approach was demonstrated by its use in a stereocontrolled synthesis of the core structure of sphingofungin E and its epimer.
