Abstract

(matrix presented) Several approaches to asymmetric induction in the α-oxoamide (1) to β-lactam (2) photorearrangement are described. Best results are obtained via irradiation of ionic and covalent chiral auxiliary-containing reactants in the crystalline state and in the interior supercages of zeolites.
