The oxidative intramolecular bromo-amination of various N-alkenyl sulfonamides and N-alkenoxyl sulfonamides via umpolung of alkali metal bromides occurred exo-selectively to generate pyrrolidines and isoxazolidines in high yields with good diastereoselectivities. This method provided the desired products with a low amount of organic waste.
