Chemical approach for interconversion of (S)- and (R)-α-amino acids.


Here we report a general method for the preparation of unnatural (R)-α-amino acids via complexation of α-(phenyl)ethylamine derived chiral reagent (S)- with various (S)-α-amino acids. The reactions proceed with synthetically useful chemical yields and thermodynamically controlled diastereoselectivity. Chiral reagent (S)- can be conveniently recovered and… (More)
