A cobalt(salen) complex has been shown to catalyse the asymmetric Darzens condensation between α-haloamides and aldehydes, allowing both the relative and absolute stereochemistry of the epoxy-amide products to be controlled. Under optimal conditions, cis-epoxides can be obtained diastereoselectively with up to 50% enantiomeric excess, whilst by changing the leaving group and base, trans-epoxides can be produced diastereoselectively with up to 43% enantiomeric excess. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd.
