A tandem conjugate addition/cyclization protocol for the asymmetric synthesis of 2-aryl-4-aminotetrahydroquinoline-3-carboxylic acid derivatives.
Condensation of tert-butyl (E)-3-(2'-aminophenyl)propenoate with a range of aromatic and heteroaromatic aldehydes gives the corresponding imines as single diastereoisomers (>98% de). Addition of lithium (R)-N-benzyl-N-(alpha-methylbenzyl)amide initiates a tandem conjugate addition/cyclization reaction to generate 2-aryl-4-aminotetrahydroquinoline-3-carboxylic acid derivatives in >98% de, >98% ee and high isolated yield. Hydrogenolysis of an N(1)-Boc protected derivative allows select...Expand abstract
