Addition of a range of organolithium and Grignard reagents to (E)-O-(1-phenylbutyl)benzyloxyacetaldoxime 1 in the presence of boron trifluoride diethyl etherate is highly diastereoselective. The resulting hydroxylamines undergo N-O bond cleavage upon treatment with zinc-acetic acid or molybdenum hexacarbonyl to give, after N-protection, protected(More)
A new asymmetric synthesis of alpha-amino acids is described in which the key step is the highly diastereoselective addition of organolithium carboxyl synthons (2-furyllithium, phenyllithium, vinyllithium) to (R)- and (S)-O-(1-phenylbutyl) oximes to give hydroxylamines, with vinyllithium being the most satisfactory nucleophilic reagent. Subsequent reductive(More)
