Abstract: Addition of carboxylic acid dianions to bromoacetonitrile lead, in good yields,to the corresponding γ-cyanoacids, which on hydrogenation yielded γ-aminoacids. Thistwo step methodology improves upon previously described results. Poor e.e’s resultedfrom our attempts to drive the enantioselectivity of this transformation by chiral amideinduction.
Keywords: GABA; γ-aminoacids; bromoacetonitrile; enediolate; regioselectivity.
