Abstract

α'-Alkylations of bicyclo[m.1.0]alkan-2-ones were shown to proceed with high diastereoselectivity under conditions which favor kinetic control of the product distribution. Product yields for active electrophiles were good to very good. In sequential α'-alkylations with different electrophiles, reversal of the order of alkylation switches the configuration of the newly formed quaternary center.
