Abstract

This paper describes how enantiomerically enriched Evans auxiliaries can be successfully prepared by either an enzymatic desymmetrisation strategy or an asymmetric synthesis using racemic auxiliaries and an enzymatic resolution. Desymmetrisation of N-Boc-protected serinol has been achieved in good yield and high enantiomeric excess using porcine pancreas lipase. This has been exploited in different ways to prepare enantiomerically enriched (4R)- and (4S)-substituted 2-oxazolidinones. In an-other approach to asymmetric synthesis, starting from a racemic Evans auxiliary, by means of a diastereoselective aldol reaction coupled with a lipase-catalysed resolution, we achieved the preparation of enantiomerically enriched beta-hydroxy acids and enantiomerically enriched 2-oxazolidinones.
