The synthesis of (±)-lasubine II has been achieved through a three-component allylation capitalizing on the unique properties of N-methoxyamines. This reaction enabled the installation of all the carbon atoms of lasubine¯II in a single operation. The N-methoxy group was efficiently used for the subsequent nitrone formation. A single-step cyclization of isoxazolidines or N-methoxyamines to form functionalized piperidine rings was also developed.
