What is it about?

The base-induced asymmetric [2,3] Stevens rearrangement of N-cinnamyl tetraalkylammonium ylides derived from L-alanine amides that proceeds via a double axially chiral intermediate to afford the corresponding α-substituted alanine derivatives with high enantio- and diastereoselectivities.
