Although 1,2-cyclic sulfamidates derived from α-methylisoserine undergo nucleophilic displacement at the quaternary center, to the best of our knowledge their behavior with amines as nucleophiles has never been explored. We have found that a broad range of amines can be used, demonstrating the scope of the reaction, and that excellent control of the chemoselectivity can be achieved. Application of this methodology for the synthesis of a chiral α,β-diamino acid and an important piperazinone heterocycle is also presented. Additionally, we have found that DMF and DMSO behave not only as polar aprotic solvents but also as O-nucleophilic reagents, allowing the incorporation of an oxygen atom at a quaternary center of the electrophile, with inversion of configuration.
