Stereodivergent [3+2] cycloadditions of chiral α-amino azomethine ylides leading to highly functionalized pyrrolidines are reported. The marriage of substrate conformational preferences and either an inter- or intramolecular cycloaddition manifold leads to either the l (syn) or u (anti) relationship between the pyrrolidine and α-stereocenters. The latter result forms the basis for a new synthetic approach to the naphthyridinomycin family of antitumor antibiotics.
