Abstract

A general approach to (4S,5S)-4-benzyloxy-5-hydroxy-N-(4-methoxybenzyl) amides 10 based on a diastereoselective reduction of (5S,6RS)-6-alkyl-5-benzyloxy-6-hydroxy-2-piperidinones 6 and their tautomeric ring-opened keto amides 7 is described. The reduction with L-Selectride at -20 °C to room temperature afforded the products 10 in excellent yields and moderate to high syn-diastereoselectivities.
Keywords: L-Selectride; 3-hydroxyglutarimide; (4S,5S)-dihydroxyamide L-Selectride; 3-hydroxyglutarimide; (4S,5S)-dihydroxyamide
