An Asymmetric isoxazole annulation proceeds from the (S)‐O‐methoxyphenylalaninol imine of (RS)‐2‐phen‐ylpropionaldehyde (3). Deprotonation, quenching with 4‐chloromethyl‐3,5‐dimethylisoxazole, and hydrolysis produced isoxazolylaldehyde (5), whose structure was confirmed by single crystal X‐ray diffractometry. The absolute configuration of (‐)‐5 was established as (R)‐by chemical correlation to the known (S)‐(‐)‐4‐methyl‐4‐phenyl‐cyclohex‐2‐ene‐1‐one (7).
