We herein developed a protocol for the asymmetric synthesis of artificial AAs featuring a 3-spiropyrrolidine oxindole skeletal with continuous tetrasubstituted carbon stereocenters by a 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction of in situ generated azomethine ylides with a chiral dehydroalanine Ni(II) complex. A three-component reaction of the Ni(II) complex with various isatins and AAs in green solvent (ethanol) provided series of diastereomeric complexes with high dr (>20:1) in 40–86% yields. The formation of different regioisomers in the case of sarcosine and proline was explained using quantum chemical calculation. The acidic decomposition of the obtained Ni(II) complexes led to the target unnatural complex AAs with a 3-spiropyrrolidine oxindole core. The chiral auxiliary ligand was recovered after decomposition and reused for the synthesis of the starting dehydroalanine complex-substrate. © 2022 Wiley-VCH GmbH.
