Diels-Alder cycloaddition of (1R,3S,4S)-3-methanesulfonyl cyanide to cyclopentadiene, followed by treatment with AcOH/H2O, afforded an 11% ee of (+)-(1S)-2-azabicyclo[2.2.1]hept-5-en-3-one [(+)-ent-1]. The analogous process from (1R,3R,4S)-3-methanesulfonyl cyanide afforded an estimated 12% ee of (-)-1.
