Synthesis of Chiral α,β-Unsaturated γ-Amino Esters via Pd-Catalyzed Asymmetric Allylic Amination

Synthesis of Chiral α,β-Unsaturated γ-Amino Esters via Pd-Catalyzed Asymmetric Allylic Amination
Wanbin Zhang, Jiefeng Shen, Chao Xia, Delong Liu
A Pd-catalyzed asymmetric allylic amination of 4-substituted 2-acetoxybut-3-enoates with amines has been developed for the regiospecific synthesis of chiral α,β-unsaturated γ-amino esters. The desired chiral aminated products can be obtained in up to 98% yield, and 99% ee and can be conveniently transformed to chiral γ-amino acid/alcohol derivatives and chiral γ-lactams, which can then be subjected to the synthesis of several types of chiral drugs and drug candidates. The preferential formation of chiral γ-amino esters may be attributed to the bulky substituents on the right side of the allyl substrates. This work provides an efficient strategy for the synthesis of chiral α,β-unsaturated γ-amino esters and their derivatives.
