We have prepared two new diastereoisomeric 2-aza-5-phosphabicyclo[2.2.1]heptanes from naturally occurring trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline in six chemical operations. These syntheses are concise and highly efficient, with straightforward purification. When we used these chiral phosphines as catalysts for reactions of γ-substituted allenoates with imines, we obtained enantiomerically enriched pyrrolines in good yields with excellent enantioselectivities. These two diastereoisomeric phosphines functioned as pseudoenantiomers, providing their chiral pyrrolines with opposite absolute configurations.
