Synthesis of a novel Boc-protected cyclopropane-modified proline analogue
Tetrahedron Lett. , 2012, 53 (30), 3847-3849
The synthesis of the Boc derivative of a novel member of the cyclopropane-modified proline library, Boc-protected 5-azaspiro[2.4]heptane-6-carboxylic acid, is reported. The synthesis was performed in six steps starting from (2S,4R)-4-hydroxyproline using a modified Simmons–Smith reaction as the key step. The reaction conditions for all the steps were carefully selected to avoid racemization at the chiral centers in the intermediates and the final product.
