The use of a bifunctional nitrogen nucleophile and an allyl carbonate starting material in successive enantioselective palladium- and diastereoselective rhodium-catalyzed reactions enables the rapid assembly of unique amino aziridine products. Further elaboration of these materials affords complex, stereodefined polyamine architectures, thus demonstrating the power of these combined methods for simplifying asymmetric C-N bond construction.
