Pyroglutamic acid smoothly reacts with sulfur tetrafluoride at room temperature to afford enantiomerically pure (5S)-5-(trifluoromethyl)pyrrolidin-2-one (92 % yield, >99 % ee). Representative one-step transformations of 1 provided both γ-(S)-trifluoromethyl GABA and (2S)-2-(trifluoromethyl)pyrrolidine on a multigram scale.
