Abstract Ether-directed diastereoselectivity in Overman rearrangement of d-methoxy and d-TBDMSO substituted allylic trichloroacetimidates has been explored using PtCl2, PtCl4, AuCl and AuCl3 catalysts in comparison with commonly used Pd(II) catalysts. For both substrates the use of PtCl2 catalyst gave notably improved anti/syn-ratio of 1,2-aminoalcohol derivatives (anti/syn¼11:1 for d-methoxy; 6:1 for d-TBDMSO) compared to all metal catalysts known to promote Overman rearrangement. Formation of 2-trichloromethyloxazoline was observed as a dominant side reaction in the metal catalysed rearrangement of d-methoxy substituted allylic trichloroacetimidates considerably reducing the yield of the desired product. This side reaction was suppressed when d-TBDMS-ether was used as a directing group.
