ABSTRACT The kinetic resolution of racemic cis-4-phenyl- and cis-4-tert-butyl-3-hydroxy-beta-lactam derivatives with 7-O-triethylsilylbaccatin III yielded paclitaxel and butitaxel analogues with high diastereoselectivity. The results demonstrated that the tert-butyldimethylsilyl protecting group at the C3-hydroxy group of the beta-lactams provided optimum kinetic resolution in comparison with the sterically less demanding triethylsilyl group and the larger triisopropylsilyl group. In addition, it was found that the C4 beta-lactam substituents also influenced diastereoselectivity. The C4 tert-butyl-beta-lactams provided better diastereoselectivity than the corresponding C4 phenyl beta-lactams.
