The title compound, C19H24ClNO5, was synthesized and subsequently employed in an Evans alkylation. The purpose was to prove the absolute configuration in the projected synthesis of the side chain of (-)-Lytophilippine A. The oxazolidinone and the isopropylidene acetal rings have twisted conformations. The oxazolidinone and side-chain carbonyl groups are orientated in an antiperiplanar arrangement to minimize van der Waals repulsions. Furthermore, the Cl atom and the acetonide-protected secondary alcohol are also in an antiperiplanar arrangement with a torsion angle of 173.64 (14)°. The absolute configuration was determined and agrees with the configuration of the used chiral auxiliary.
