Oxidation of Schiff bases formed by the reaction of chiral (R)-(+)-α-phenylethylamine and carbonyl compound using m-chloroperbenzoic acid gives rise to the formation of nonracemic diastereomeric 3,3-disubstituted oxaziridines in a high optical yield. Oxidation of (E)-(R)-(—)-N-benzylidene-α-phenylethylamine yields a mixture of all four possible nonracemic diastereomers with predominance of E products.
