The first synthesis of 2-amino-3,4-dihydroxycyclooctane-1-carboxylic acid, methyl 6-hydroxy-9-oxo-8-oxabicyclo[5.2.1]decan-10-yl)carbamate, and 10-amino-6-hydroxy-8-oxabicyclo[5.2.1]decan-9-one starting from cis-9-azabicyclo[6.2.0]dec-6-en-10-one is described. cis-9-Azabicyclo[6.2.0]dec-6-en-10-one was transformed into the corresponding amino ester and its protected amine. Oxidation of the double bond in the N-Boc-protected methyl 2-aminocyclooct-3-ene-1-carboxylate then delivered the targeted amino acid and its derivatives. Density-functional theory (DFT) computations were used to explain the reaction mechanism for the ring opening of the epoxide and the formation of five-membered lactones. The stereochemistry of the synthesized compounds was determined by 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy. The configuration of methyl 6-hydroxy-9-oxo-8-oxabicyclo[5.2.1]decan-10-yl)carba-mate was confirmed by X-ray diffraction.
