Abstract

An orthogonally protected β,γ′-diamino acid 6 possessing conformationally-constrained ring system was synthesized as a novel cyclic amino acid analogue. This synthesis involves as key steps chemoselective enzymatic hydrolysis of cis-piperidine-3,5-dicarboxylic ester derivative followed by efficient kinetic resolution of the partially resolved half-acid to afford the C1-symmetric piperidine-3,5-dicarboxylic acid monoester in high enantiomeric excess (>98% ee). The optically active half-acid was transformed to the cyclic amino acid via Curtius-type rearrangement.
