[reaction: see text]. The 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction has long been recognized as a powerful methodology in organic synthesis. More recently, this reaction has become a popular manifold for the construction of chemical diversity. Herein, we report the development of a chiral template for the facially selective cycloaddition of isomünchnones, a common class of 1,3-dipoles. The modular format of the asymmetric unit allowed a systematic optimization of selectivity. In addition, the chiral auxiliary was removed through an unusually facile ester aminolysis.
