The Lewis acid-promoted ene reactions with α-amino aldehydes as enophiles have been developed and shown to attain high level of syn-diastereofacial control, by the judicious choice of the amino-protecting group and the Lewis acid employed. The aldol-type reactions of ketene silyl acetals with α-amino aldehydes have also been developed to afford high level of either syn- or anti-diastereofacial control.
