Abstract

Abstract The kinetic resolution and α-deprotonation of nitrogen–containing heterocycles using organolithium chemistry has been an important area of work in the Coldham group over the last decade. Some successful research published has been focussed around the kinetic resolution reactions of N-Boc-2-arylpiperidines and N-Boc-2-aryltetrahydroquinolines. This report describes the extension of this chemistry to different heterocycles, namely 1,3- oxazinane A, benzoxazines B, quinoxalines C, and indoline D derivatives (Figure A). Figure A The kinetic resolutions were attempted using a chiral base complex (n-BuLi/(+)-sp), which led to the recovered starting materials in good yields and excellent enantiomer ratios (Figure B). Figure B It was possible to remove the Boc group using acid (TFA) to give the corresponding secondary amine with the enantiopurity being maintained (Figure C).II
