The camphorpyrazolidinone derived N-glyoxylate was efficiently prepared and used as an electrophile in the Baylis-Hillman reaction under classical DABCO catalyzed conditions. The corresponding 2-hydroxy-3-methylene succinic acid derivative was generally obtained with excellent diastereoselectivity and moderate chemical yields (51-75%).
