Abstract

The extremely useful chiral building blocks 3-hydroxy-2-alkylpropionates 8 are prepared in either S or R eantiomeric form via the diastereoselective addition of chiral alcohols to arylketenes 4 and the manipulation of the resultant chiral 2-arylaliphatic esters 5 and 6. Application of this methodology to the asymmetric syntheses of 3-mercapto-2-alkylpropionates (9) and (S)-(-)-paraconic acid (3) is described.
