Abstract

(2R,3R)-3-{(1R)-1-[tert-Butyl(dimethyl)siloxy]ethyl}-4-oxoazetidin-2-yl acetate was efficiently prepared from l-ascorbic acid. The key steps were the a highly diastereoselective [2 + 2] cycloaddition of diketene with an (S)-glyceraldehyde-derived ald­imine to give the ketone, stereoselective titanium tetrachloride mediated asymmetric reduction to give the corrsponding S-configured alcohol, and Mitsunobu inversion of the latter to give the desired R-configured alcohol.
