In recent years, five-membered ring cyclic sulfamidate imines (5H-1,2,3-oxathiazole 2,2-dioxides) have received increasing attention as useful precursors for the stereoselective synthesis of many valuable heterocycles. Bearing a reactive N-sulfonyl imine moiety as part of the stereodefined skeleton, this sulfamidate imine platform has been utilised as a substrate in many reactions, including nucleophilic additions and reductions, to prepare highly functionalised cyclic sulfamidates. In addition, cyclic sulfamidate imines can also readily participate as nucleophiles in many chemical transformations, owing to the reactivity of the acidic proton(s) adjacent to the imine moiety. This short review highlights recent developments involving cyclic sulfamidate imines, including their synthesis and their diastereoselective and enantioselective chemical reactions.
