Abstract

β-Hydroxy amides with stereodefined geometry represent an important unit present in various natural products. The diastereoselective preparation of amides carrying a secondary or tertiary alcohol in β-position is described here.

    This procedure can be successfully applied, with slight modifications (the use of BH3·py complex instead of BH3·Me2S) to closely related systems.
