The palladium(II)-promoted reaction of a variety of olefins and bromamine-T provided N-tosyl-2-substituted aziridines under mild conditions. Olefins bearing chiral appendages gave only a poor to modest diastereoselectivity. Appropriate deuterated olefins were selected to study the stereochemistry of the reaction. A Pd(IV) intermediate is proposed as the aziridinating species.
