Strategies for the synthesis of the title compounds have been developed using a diastereoselective aziridination reaction of 4-O-substituted cyclohexenones. Aziridination using a chiral amine permitted resolution of a 4-hydroxycyclohexane derivative, and this resulted in the synthesis of both enantiomers of the title compound. Alternatively, the chiral 4-hydroxycyclohexenone starting material was derived from quinic acid. In both cases stereoselective epoxidation and opening of the aziridine ring with hydrazoic acid afforded the 2-azidocyclohexenone, which was transformed to the 2-acetamido group present in the natural product.
