(Chemical Equation Presented) Two new classes of azido- and aziridino-hydroxyl-β-lactam containing structures have been prepared by means of a stereo- and regioselective epoxide ring opening. The straightforwardness of the procedure makes this strategy useful for the synthesis of potentially bioactive compounds. Some selected examples showed promising activity in acyl CoA-cholesterol acyltransferase inhibition assays.
