The base-catalyzed addition of 4-nitrobutanoates 6 to N-tert-butanesulfinyl imines 8 under solvent-free reaction conditions proceeded with high face diastereoselectivity. The resulting β-nitroamine derivatives 9 were easily transformed into 6-substituted piperidine-2,5-diones 11 upon removal of the sulfinyl group with concomitant δ-lactam formation and functional group transformation under Nef reaction conditions.
