Rhodium-Mediated Asymmetric Transfer Hydrogenation: a Diastereo- and Enantioselective Synthesis of syn-α-Amido β-Hydroxy Esters

Abstract

The preparation of syn α-benzoylamido β-hydroxy esters through asymmetric transfer hydrogenation (ATH) with a tethered Rh(III)-DPEN complex via dynamic kinetic resolution (DKR) has been developed for the first time starting from α-benzoylamido β-keto esters. A variety of α-benzoylamido β-keto esters were converted under mild conditions into the corresponding syn α-benzoylamino β-hydroxy esters with high yields (up to 98%) and diastereomeric ratios (up to >99:1 dr) as well as excellent enantioselectivities (up to >99% ee).
