Telescoped and one-pot olefination/asymmetric functionalization approaches to disubstituted pyrrolidines (dr up to 99:1, up to 99% ee) have been developed using commercially available tetramisole (0.1 to 5 mol %). Using OTMS-quinidine as the Lewis base gives preferential access to an anti-configured pyrrolidine in high enantioselectivity.
