Key to success: The title reaction provides facile access to enantioenriched 3,4-dihydroquinazolin-2(1H)-ones containing a quaternary stereogenic center in high yields with excellent enantioselectivities. Subsequent transformations lead to the convenient preparation of the anti-HIV drug DPC 083 and N-fused polycyclic compounds without loss of enantiomeric excess.
