Imines of (1S,9S)-t-butyl-9-amino-octahydro-6,10-dioxo-6H-pyridazino[1,2-a][1,2]diazepine-1-carboxylate undergo thermal (toluene, 110degreesC) or LiBr-DBU catalysed (MeCN, room temperature) regio- and stereo-specific cycloaddition to a range of chiral dipolarophiles giving enantiopure spiro-cycloadducts in excellent yield. The reactions proceed via intermediate NH azomethine ylides and litho azomethine ylides, respectively and results in the multiplication of chiral centres from 2 (one of which is lost in the process) to 5.
