A convenient and robust stereocontrolled procedure has been developed for the synthesis of novel trifluoromethyl-containing piperidine and azepane β-amino ester stereoisomers. The synthesis started from readily available unsaturated bicyclic β-lactams and was based on oxidative cleavage of the ring C[dbnd]C double bond followed by ring closure of the diformyl intermediates in the presence of 2,2,2-trifluoroethylamine hydrochloride through reductive amination. The synthetic procedure has efficiently been extended towards the synthesis of mono- and difluorinated analogs.
