  1. [a] See the Supporting Information for details. [b] Ratio of product (P) to starting material (SM) determined by 1H NMR spectroscopy (500 MHz). Number in parentheses is the isolated yield of both diastereomers (on a 0.4 mmol scale). [c] Ratio determined by 1H NMR spectroscopy (500 MHz) prior to purification. [d] Enantiomeric excess of the major diastereomer determined by HPLC. [e] Starting material recovered. [f] Yield of major diastereomer only. … n.d. = not determined.
