A high yielding four-step synthesis of enantiopure 4-(4-hydroxybenzyl)-oxazolidin-2-one (S)-1 from N-Boc-L-tyrosine is described. (S)-1 is a key intermediate for the preparation of a number of polymer supported Evans' oxazolidin-2-ones that have been employed previously for solid supported asymmetric synthesis.
