New axially chiral N-acryl-N-allyl-o-tert-butylanilide and N-(o-tert-butylphenyl)-2-methylmaleimide with high optical purity and definite absolute configurations were prepared from o-tert-butylaniline and (S)-O-acetyl lactic acid or (R)-2-methylsuccinic acid, respectively. Iodine- or Lewis acid-mediated asymmetric Diels−Alder reaction of these axially chiral compounds with various dienes proceeded with high endo and diastereofacial selectivity.
