Utilizing our lateral metalation coupled with Jacobsen's catalytic asymmetric amino nitrile synthesis, we have demonstrated the ability to synthesize isoxazole-containing amino acid glutamate analogues in high yield and high enantiomeric excesses. Chiral centers α or β at the C-5 position do not detract from diastereoselectivity of the Jacobsen-Strecker reaction.
