Asymmetric synthesis of the diastereomeric 7-(1-hydroxyethyl)-2-[1-hydroxy-2-(tert-butylamino)ethyl]benzofurans (2), the benzylic hydroxylation metabolites of bufuralol (1), is described, and the absolute configurations of these diastereomers are assigned. 1"-Oxobufuralol (3) was reduced with a complex of (2S)-(-)-2-amino-3-methyl-1,1-diphenylbutan-1-ol and… CONTINUE READING
