The sterically controlled oxidative cleavage of N-protected diexo- and diendo-substituted norbornene β-amino acids/esters resulted in four trimethyl 3-aminocyclopentane-1,2,4-carboxylate diastereomers. The sodium methoxide mediated isomerization of the four diastereomers in all cases yielded the thermodynamically most stable all-trans stereoisomer as a single product.
