|Title:||Direct conversion of (R)-epichlorohydrin to (S)-3-aminopropane-1,2-diol: An important chiral C-3 building block|
Babu, K Chandra
|Abstract:||A new and effective method for the preparation of optically active (S)-3-amino-1,2-propanediol 1 has been established starting from (R)-epichlorohydrin 2. The synthetic approach involves the reaction of (R)-epichlorohydrin 2 with acetone catalyzed by boron trifluoride etherate (BF3·OEt2) to give the (R)-4-(chloromethyl)-2,2-dimethyl-1,3-dioxolane, 5. Replacing the chloro group in (R)-5 with amino group by azidation followed by reduction gives ((S)-2,2-dimethyl-1,3-dioxolan-4-yl)methanamine 7. Acetal deprotection of the obtained (S)-7 with MeOH.HCl gives (S)-3-aminopropane-1,2-diol·HCl.|
