Condensation of 2-acetyl benzoic acid with aminothiols proceeds with extremely high diastereoselectivity to produce the desired 2,3-dihydro-9b11- thiazolo[2,3-a]isoindolin-5-one products in good yield. The relative stereochemistry of the major diastereoisomer, formed exclusively when using non-racemic aminothiol substrates, has been determined for the first time by single crystal X-ray analysis.
