In many cases with high threo selectivity, Grignard additions can be performed on simple, nonactivated, and even enolizable imine derivatives of optically active aldehydes, as the reactions with 1 and 2 show. This should open a new route to aminohydroxy acids that supplements the familiar one starting from α-amino acids/aldehydes.
