Abstract
The stereocontrolled intramolecular coupling of unsaturated β-ketoesters and β-ketoamides is reported. Good yields of highly substituted β-hydroxycyclopentanecarboxylates are generated in the process, with substantial and predictable stereochemical control at three contiguous stereocenters.
