The authors report their findings on the radical cyclization of enoximes bearing an allylic chiral substitutent, extending on a preliminary study (Org. Lett. 2008, 8, 4871). Investigation of the role of steric and electronic parameters of the starting materials and further insight into the mechanism of the transformation are outlined in this comprehensive report.
