A range of novel γ- and δ-sultams was prepared by intramolecular [4+2] cycloaddition of vinylsulfonamides with purely thermal activation and under high pressure. Using N-1-phenylethyl substituted vinylsulfonamides, enantiopure sultams were readily obtained, debenzylation of which provided the corresponding NH sultams in high yields in the case of δ-sultams.
