			Reaction Scheme: <IMG src="/images/empty.gif">Methanesulfonylation of phthalic anhydride protected phenylglycinol<IMG src="/images/empty.gif">

Chemicals Used

Methanesulfonyl chloride (Fluka)
Triethylamine (BDH)
(R)-2-(2-hydroxy-1-phenylethyl)isoindoline-1,3-dione (Prepared in house, see page 609)

Procedure

Methanesulfonyl chloride (0.32 ml, 4.12 mmol) and TEA (0.57 ml, 4.12 mmol) were added to a solution of (R)-2-(2-hydroxy-1-phenylethyl)isoindoline-1,3-dione (1.0 g, 3.7 mmol) in DCM (20 ml) and were stirred overnight. The resulting solution was washed with water (3 × 20 ml) and dried over anhydrous sodium sulphate. The solvents were removed under reduced pressure and the residue was used in the subsequent reaction without further purification. Yield 1.22 g (94%).

Author's Comments

Worked smoothly. Very reproducible.
