Open sesame: The enantio- and diastereoselective nucleophilic ring opening of protected aziridines and cyclic sulfamidates using asymmetric phase-transfer catalysis (PTC) is reported. The ring-opening alkylation reactions create quaternary chiral centres containing ethylene- and propylene-amino motifs in good yields with good to excellent enantioselectivities (see scheme). These reactions are broad in scope and a wide range of pro-nucleophiles are tolerated.
