Abstract

An efficient and practical method for the preparation of α-imidazol-1-yl esters from 1,2-diaza-1,3-dienes (DDs), α-amino esters and aldehydes is described. The overall sequence features a Michael-type conjugate addition between the α-amino ester and the DD, followed by iminium ion formation via condensation with the aldehyde and 1,5-electrocyclization of the resulting thermally-generated azavinyl azomethine ylide to afford eventually α-imidazol-1-yl esters. Such a protocol allows the access to enantiomerically pure imidazoles from optically pure α-amino esters.
