Abstract: Application of the Ferrier rearrangement led to a novel carbohydrate based synthetic route to 4-aminohexenoic acid viz. (R) and (S)-vigabatrin. The potential of D- glucose or D-galactose as the chiral starting materials for the synthesis of (R) and (S)- vigabatrin has been explored.
Keywords: Vigabatrin; GABA-T; γ-aminobutyric acid; 4-amino-5-hexenoic acid; Ferrier rearrangement; glycal.
