The ring and I: Hypervalent iodine compounds avoid the issues of toxicity or complicated ligands of many transition-metal-based systems. A highly enantioselective oxyamination of alkenes with N-sulfonyl ureas employing chiral, lactic acid-based hypervalent iodine reagents gives a facile synthesis of enantiomerically pure 2-arylproline derivatives (see scheme) for the first time.
