A short and convenient procedure for the stereoselective synthesis of novel optically active 2-hydroxy-1-norbornanesulfonamides starting from commercially available natural camphor and fenchone is reported. The synthetic route involves a nucleophilic substitution at the sulfenyl sulfur atom of 2-methylene-1-norbornylthiotriflates followed by oxidation of the intermediate sulfenamides and highly diastereoselective reduction of the carbonyl group of the parent 2-oxo-1-norbornanesulfonamides.
