			Reaction Scheme: Condensation of piperidine&nbsp;with&nbsp; <em>N</em>-protected phenylalanine

Chemicals Used

N-Benzyloxycarbonyl-L-phenylalanine (TCI-C0660, as-received)
1-(2-Methoxyphenyl)piperazine (TCI-M0883, as-received)
1-Hydroxybenzotriazole Monohydrate (= HOBt·H2O) (TCI-H0468, as-received)
1-(3-Dimethylaminopropyl)-3-ethylcarbodiimide Hydrochloride [Coupling Agent for Peptides Synthesis] (EDC·HCl) (TCI-D1601, as-received)
Ethyl acetate
Sodium Sulfate
SIlica-gel for chromatography


1-(2-methoxyphenyl)piperazine (500 mg, 2.60 mmol) was dissolved in DMF (15 mL). To this solution was added N-benzyloxycarbonyl-L-phenylalanine (770 mg, 2.60 mmol) and 1-hydroxybenzotriazole monohydrate (414 mg, 2.71 mmol). The reaction mixture was cooled to 0 °C, then 1-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-3-ethylcarbodiimide hydrochloride (515 mg, 2.71 mmol) was added. Reaction was allowed to warm to room temperature, then stirred for 20 h at room temperature. Complete of the reaction was confirmed by TLC. Reaction was quenched by adding H2O (20 mL). Reaction mixture was extracted by EtOAc (30 mL). Organic phase was washed with H2O (20 mL, twice) and brine (20 mL), dried over Na2SO4, concentrated under reduced pressure to afford the crude product (1.2 g) as pale yellow oil. Crude product was purified by column chromatography on silica-gel (EtOAc: Hexane = 60: 40) to afford the product as white powder (1.10 g, 2.32 mmol, 90%).

Author's Comments

All chemical manipulations were performed in a fume hood. 
The reaction mixture was monitored by TLC (hexane / ethyl acetate = ï¼”:6, Rf = 0.40)
