Dirhodium-catalyzed enantioselective C-H insertion of N-(2-benzyloxyethyl)-N-(tert-butyl)diazoacetamide and its application for the synthesis of chiral GABOB.


PMID 15290686

Abstract

Rh(2)(4S-MEOX)(4) and ethereal solvent are the best catalytic system for the enantioselective intramolecular C-H insertion of N-(2-benzyloxyethyl)-N-(tert-butyl)diazoacetamide 2. The highest enantiomeric excess obtained was 91%. A new route for the asymmetric synthesis of gamma-amino-beta-hydroxybutyric acid (GABOB) has been developed.
