Five-, six-, and seven-membered cyclic α-amino phosphonates, amino acid surrogates, are prepared in enantiomerically pure form via the highly diastereomeric addition of metal phosphonates to masked oxo sulfinimines. Hydrolysis of the resulting masked oxo α-amino phosphonates followed by reduction of the intermediate cyclic imino phosphonates affords the title compounds in good yield.
