A highly efficient regio- and stereoselective spiroaziridine ring opening with 2-bromophenols and a subsequent tandem cyclization reaction was developed for the one-pot synthesis of enantiopure 3,4-dihydrospiro­[benzo­[b]­[1,4]­oxazine-2,3′-oxindole] with excellent enantiopurity (ee up to >99%). It is further extended to asymmetric synthesis of NH-free 3,4-dihydrospiro­[benzo­[b]­[1,4]­oxazine-2,3′-xindole] retaining the optical activity.
