A systematic approach to diverse, lead-like scaffolds from α,α-disubstituted amino acids

Author affiliations

Abstract

A powerful strategy for the efficient lead-oriented synthesis of novel molecular scaffolds is demonstrated. Twenty two scaffolds were prepared from just four α-amino acid-derived building blocks and a toolkit of six connective reactions. Importantly, each individual scaffold has the ability to specifically target lead-like chemical space.
