(R)-(+)-2-Methyl-2-propanesulfinamide may be used to prepare N-(1-cyclohexylmethylidene)-2-methylpropane-2-sulfinamide via copper mediated condensation with cyclohexane carboxaldehyde. It may also be used to prepare (20E)-N-[t-butyl-(R)-sulfinyl]-3β-(t-butyldimethylsilyloxy)-pregn-5-en-20-imine, an intermediate for the development of androgen receptor antagonists.
Useful reagent for synthesizing chiral amines.
Preparation of ß-chloro sulfinamides in a synthesis of chiral azridines. Also used to prepare an organocatalyst for enantioselective reduction of imines.
Can be readily transformed into P,N-sulfinyl imine ligands through condensation with aldehydes and ketones, which can undergo iridium-catalyzed asymmetric hydrogenation of olefins.

Easily accessible chiral sulfinamide 2 has been developed as the first highly efficient and enantioselective organocatalyst relying solely on a chiral sulfur center for stereochemical induction. In the presence of 20 mol % of 2, a broad range of N-aryl

[reaction: see text] Reaction of chiral alpha-chloro tert-butanesulfinyl aldimines with Grignard reagents efficiently afforded beta-chloro N-sulfinamides in high diastereomeric excess. The latter compounds were cyclized toward the corresponding chiral aziridines in a high-yielding one-pot reaction or after separate treatment with

Addition of alkyl or aryl Grignard reagents to N-sulfinyl imines derived from 3- and 4-substituted cyclohexanones proceeds with good yields and with excellent diasteroselectivity. The selectivity of the reaction is controlled by the ring substituent rather than the sulfinyl group
