Methods for the preparation of 1,3-amino alcohols and their derivatives containing two stereogenic centers usually involve a two-step installation of the chiral centers. An aldol-Tishchenko reaction of chiral sulfinimines which involves the first reported reduction of a C=N in this type of reaction is described. Two and even three chiral centers can be installed in one synthetic step, affording anti-1,3-amino alcohols in good diastereo- and enantioselectivity.
