Abstract

The efficient asymmetric synthesis of new chiral γ-chloro-α,β-diamino acid derivatives via highly diastereoselective Mannich-type reactions of N-(diphenylmethylene) glycine esters across a chiral α-chloro-N-p-toluenesulfinylimine was developed. The influence of the base, LDA or LiHMDS, used for the formation of the glycine enolates, was of great importance for the anti-/syn-diastereoselectivity of the Mannich-type reaction. The γ-chloro-α,β-diamino acid derivatives proved to be excellent building blocks for ring closure towards optically pure anti- and syn-β,γ-aziridino-α-amino esters, and subsequent ring transformation into trans-3-aminoazetidine-2-carboxylic acid derivatives and α,β-diamino-γ-butyrolactones.
