ABSTRACT

This communication describes studies in which an azo hetero-Diels-Alder adduct was furnished in high regio- and enantioselectivity using azopyridine as a reagent and silver as a catalyst. The obtained hetero-Diels-Alder adduct was easily converted to the corresponding chiral 1,4-diamino alcohol.
