A viable nitrogen source for the aminohydroxylation reaction of terminal alkenes: By adding a N-O based reoxidant onto an amino acid acyl carbon atom, compounds were obtained that facilitated catalytic turnover and also promoted the conjugation of an amino acid with an alkene. High levels of regioselectivity were observed, as well as good stereoselectivity induced by catalytic amounts of a chiral ligand.
