C(alpha)-tetrasubstituted amino acid based peptides in asymmetric catalysis.


PMID 16123989

Abstract

C(alpha)-tetrasubstituted alpha-amino acids constitute a powerful tool for controlling the conformation of short peptide sequences. Chiral peptides may be used in stereoselective reactions both for asymmetric induction and in kinetic resolution. By reviewing recent data from our own laboratories and by presenting new results on the stereoselective oxidation of chalcone to the corresponding oxide, this contribution shows that the control of peptide conformation is a critical issue in order to achieve successful stereoselective catalysis.
