Preparation of alpha-aminobenzylphosphonic acids with a stereogenic quaternary carbon atom via microscopically configurationally stable alpha-aminobenzyllithiums.


The enantiomers of 1-phenylethylamine were phosphorylated with diethyl chlorophosphate/Et(3)N and then Boc-protected (Boc=tert-butoxycarbonyl) at the nitrogen atom. These phosphoramidates were metalated by using sBuLi/N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine (TMEDA) to give alpha-aminobenzyllithiums that isomerised to alpha-aminophosphonates in yields of up to… (More)
