Stereocontrolled Iodolactonization of erythro and threo Tertiary Amides

A series of α-amino and dialkyl-β-oxygenated (hydroxyl and alkyl ester) tertiary amides were subjected to iodolactonization and it was observed that with only 1 exception, (threo 11b), all of the compounds cyclized with useful levels of stereoselection (at least 3:1). While the origin of this effect is obscure, these results suggest that in such amide substrates with at least one substituent larger than methyl a to the amide, iodolactonization is a viable strategy for the stereocontrolled preparation of highly substituted γ-butyrolactones.
