A stereoconservative three-step synthesis to access to 1,2,4-oxadiazine-3,6-dione is presented. This underexplored platform could be considered as a constrained oxy-azapeptide or an aza-diketomorpholine, the methodology being then successfully applied to produce enantiopure aza-analogs of diketomorpholine natural products. Importantly, the first crystal structures were obtained and compared to diketomorpholine and diketopiperazine structures. Finally, a straightforward procedure concerning the coupling of this heterocyclic scaffold with various amino acids to afford original pseudodipeptide analogs was described.
