Aminohydroxylation of tert-butyl sorbate [tert-butyl (E,E)-hexa-2,4-dienoate] using enantiopure lithium (R)-N-benzyl-N-(α-methylbenzyl)amide and (-)-camphorsulfonyloxaziridine gives tert-butyl (R,R,R,E)-2-hydroxy-3-[N-benzyl-N-(α-methylbenzyl)amino]hex-4-enoate in >99:1 dr. Subsequent dihydroxylation under Upjohn conditions (OsO(4)/NMO) gives tert-butyl (2R,3R,4S,5S,αR)-2,4,5-trihydroxy-3-[N-benzyl-N-(α-methylbenzyl)amino]hexanoate (in 95:5 dr) while dihydroxylation under Donohoe conditions (OsO(4)/TMEDA) proceeds with antipodal diastereofacial selectivity to give the (R,R,R,R,R)-diastereoisomer (in 95:5 dr). The amino triols resulting from these dihydroxylation reactions are useful for further elaboration, as demonstrated by the asymmetric synthesis of 3,6-dideoxy-3-amino-L-talose.
