Spiro[4,5]decanes and polycyclic compounds bearing spiro[4,5]decane systems are important biofunctional molecules. Described are diastereoselective formal (4+1) cycloaddition reactions to afford oxindole-functionalized spiro[4,5]decanes and organocatalytic enantioselective Michael–Henry cascade reactions of the (4+1) cycloaddition products to generate spirooxindole polycyclic derivatives bearing the spiro[4,5]decane system. Spiro[4,5]decanes bearing oxindoles containing three stereogenic centers and spirooxindole polycycles having seven stereogenic centers, including two all-carbon chiral quaternary centers and one tetrasubstituted chiral carbon center, were obtained with high diastereo- and enantioselectivities. Spiro strategies: Strategies to construct oxindole-functionalized spiro[4,5]decanes and polycyclic derivatives were developed. Through formal (4+1) cycloaddition and catalytic asymmetric Michael–Henry cascade reactions, products containing seven chiral centers, including two all-carbon quaternary centers and one tetrasubstituted carbon center, were obtained with high diastereo- and enantioselectivities in two steps.
