A one-pot sequence of α-aminoxylation of n-propanal catalyzed by L-proline followed by the Z-selective Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons reaction was developed. The highly functionalized chiral γ-anilinoxy-Z-α,β-unsaturated ester 6 was obtained in 57-58% yield with 98:2 Z-selectivity from n-propanal in one-pot procedure. The transformation of the anilinoxy group of 6 into a hydroxyl group can be carried out by treatment with catalytic amount of CuSO4 in methanol to give either the corresponding alcohol 8 or chiral γ-valerolactone 4a in moderate yield. Chiral 6-methyl-2-phenyl-2H-1,2-oxazin-3(6H)-one 7 was obtained in 75% yield from 6 by treatment with CSA.
