Indium-mediated coupling of ethyl 2-(bromomethyl)acrylate (1) and chiral N-tert-butanelsulfinylimines 2 in a saturated sodium bromide aqueous solution leads to N-tert-butanesulfinyl aminoesters 3 in high yields and diastereoselectivities. After column chromatography purification, enantiomerically pure aminoesters 3 were converted into the expected α-methylene-γ-butyrolactams 4 in a one-pot process.
