Kainoid amino acids are natural biological active pyrrolidine dicarboxylic acids with potent neuroexcitatory activity as well as insecticidal and anthelmintic properties. They possess 3 stereogenic centres, which represent considerable challenges for synthetic chemists. We speculated that a tandem asymmetric Heck arylation reaction and [2,3] sigmatropic rearrangement would provide a quick and efficient way to access these pharmacological active molecules.
