Spirocyclic ring systems are useful intermediates in the design and synthesis of medicinally active agents and commonly found as cores in natural products. Recently, syntheses of a key intermediate Boc-protected-1-oxa-8-azaspiro[4.5]decan-3-amine 1 were examined. While multigram quantities of the racemic material could be made from the reduction of an energic azide intermediate, larger scale reactions and a chiral synthesis required further investigations. Herein, we describe the use of a continuous three-step flow process to scale the formation and reduction of an azide intermediate, and the use of a transaminase to prepare the desired enantiomer in high yield and enantiomeric excess.
