Chemicals Used

(R)-2-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-2-phenylethyl methanesulfonate (Prepared in house, See Page 607)
HCl (4M)
Dioxane (Fisher Scientific)

Procedure

A solution of HCl (10 ml, 4 M) was added to a solution of (R)-2-(tert-butoxycarbonylamino)-2-phenylethyl methanesulfonate (2.5 g, 7.9 mmol) in dioxane (10 ml) and was stirred for 1 h. The volatiles were removed under reduced pressure and the residue was recrystallised from acetonitrile/diethyl ether. Yield 1.28 g (65%).

Author's Comments

Derivatives with combinations of different leaving groups, (iodine, methane sulfonate) and amine protecting groups( BOC-anhydride, phthalic anhydride) as well as no protecting groups were synthesised. See page 607, 608, 609, 610,610, 611, 612 and 613 for more detail on phenyl glycinol and pages 614 and 615 for more detail on (S)- Alaninol.
