The aza-Darzens reaction of the chiral enolate derived from bromoacetylcamphorsultam 1 with N-(diphenylphosphinyl)aryl- and tert-butyl-methanimines proceeds in good yield to give cis-N-(diphenylphosphinyl)aziridinylcarbonyl sultams with high de. Monochiral cis-aziridinecarboxylates may be obtained in acceptable yield by hydrolysis of these sultams.
