The chiral auxiliary N-1-(1'-naphthyl)ethyl-O-tert-butylhydroxylamine: a chiral Weinreb amide equivalent.
The chiral auxiliary N-1-(1'-naphthyl)ethyl-O-tert-butylhydroxylamine is readily prepared from N-hydroxyphthalimide in four steps, with resolution giving access to both enantiomers in > 98% ee, on a multigram (> 25 g) scale. Conversion to a range of N-acyl derivatives, followed by highly diastereoselective alkylation (> or = 94% de) gives the corresponding chiral, 2-substituted derivatives as single diastereoisomers (> 98% de) after chromatography. Reductive cleavage with LiAlH(4)...Expand abstract
