Chirality

Stereoselective acylation of a racemic amine with C(alpha)-methyl phenylglycine-based dipeptide 5(4H)-oxazolones.


PMID 16113993

Abstract

Reactions of a racemic amine with chiral, N(alpha)-acetylated, C(alpha)-methyl l-phenylglycine-based dipeptide 5(4H)-oxazolones proceed diastereoselectively to give predominantly dipeptide alkylamides comprising d-alpha-phenylethylamine. Diastereoselectivity is remarkably sensitive to solvent polarity and reaction temperature but not significantly to the nature of the C(alpha)-tetrasubstituted alpha-amino acid at position 1 of the dipeptide. The beta-turn 3D structures of the aminolysis products were established in CDCl(3) solution by FT-IR absorption and in one case in the crystal state by X-ray diffraction as well.
