|Abstract||Orthogonally protected chiral β-hydroxy-γ-amino acids can be accessed in >100 g quantities from readily available starting materials and reagents in 3-4 steps. These chiral synthons contain two adjacent stereocenters along with suitably protected functional groups (O-TBS, N-Boc) for downstream reactivity. Implementation of two existing aldol technologies allows rapid access to all possible stereoisomers of 1. The guiding principles during reaction optimization were reaction scalability and operational efficiency. Conversion of the amino acids to a variety of chiral building blocks in 1-2 steps demonstrates their synthetic utility.|
