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. View Full-Text
