In this study, the formation of oxazolidinone intermediates along the reaction coordinates of two L-proline-catalyzed reactions was investigated using high-level quantum mechanical calculations. Our results suggest that the final product is produced via routes other than the currently-adopted catalytic cycle for L-proline, including routes where oxazolidinones are directly involved.
