Chiral Bicyclic Tetramates as Non-Planar Templates for Chemical Library Synthesis


Corresponding author: Mark G. Moloney,


Chemoselective Dieckmann cyclization reactions may be used on oxazolidine and thiazolidine templates derived from various aldehydes to access bicyclic tetramates, which have potential as templates for chemical library construction. Bioassay against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli showed that these systems have little or no intrinsic antibacterial bioactivity.
