In this communication we describe a straightforward and diastereoselective approach to prepare functionalised oxazolidin-2-ones from Baylis-Hillman adducts. A stereoselective synthesis of a highly substituted vicinal aminoalcohol and a formal synthesis of a chloramphenicol derivative are also described. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
