Chemistry and Pharmacology
Chiral β-amino alcohols 2, available from natural α-amino acids by reduction, have been converted in a sequence of N-protection, O-activation, thioether formation, and deprotection to novel C2-symmetrical β,β′-diamino thioethers 1, which shall serve as chiral tridentate ligands in late transition metal complexes. Optical purity of compounds 1 was established by amide formation with (+)-O-acetylmandelic acid.
