Double asymmetric induction as a mechanistic probe indicates that, for the conjugate addition of (R)- and (S)-lithium N-benzyl-N--alpha-methylbenzylamide to (S)-3'-phenylprop-2'-enoyl-4-benzyloxazolidinone, the reactive conformation of the N-acyl oxazolidinone is the anti-s-cis form, facilitating the asymmetric synthesis of a pseudotripeptide.
