A facile approach for the addition of nucleophiles to N-acyliminium ion has been developed through solid-supported (˗)-8-phenylmenthyl auxiliary as an effective chiral inductor. This method has yielded higher ee/de% in nucleophilic additions through the Si-face of the polymer-supported N-acyliminium ion. Furthermore, the scope of this protocol using these key intermediates for the synthesis of alkaloids such as (S)-coniine, (R)-pelletierine and (R,R)-myrtine was also explored. Additionally, the key intermediates associated with this reaction were monitored and characterized by MALDI–TOF-MS.
