Seven-membered N-heterocycles are flexible ring structures, and their conformational control is important to their bioactivity. Our prior work shows that stereoselective monofluorination, if installed diastereoselectively, can bias a seven-membered, substituted azepane ring to one major conformation. However, multiple fluorination may not provide as much conformational bias due to conflicting effects. Here we show in our model azepane system that fluorohydrins can confer strong conformational bias if the relative configuration of the fluorine and hydroxy substitutent is appropriate to enable cooperative conformational control.
