Desymmetrisation of a meso-imide by enantioselective reduction using a chiral oxazaborolidine catalyst derived from (1R,2S)-cis-1-amino-2-indanol followed by reduction of the hydroxylactam product proceeded with good enantiomeric excess (80-91%) at significantly lower catalyst loadings compared to reactions using the prolinol-derived catalyst. Models for the selectivity observed are proposed based upon structural probes and experimental observations. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
