A conventional new route to the novel oxazolidin-2-one derivatives (3a-f) having two substituents on N-3 and C-4 in the oxazolidin-2-one ring was established with racemic beta-aminoalanine derivatives (1) as the key starting materials.

    ABSTRACT: The closure by cyclization with diethyl carbonate (EtO)(2)CO from aminoalcohols 1 as starting material can lead to the oxazolidinones 2a, b and 2c, respectively. In the reaction of trans-isomer (6) and (EtO)(2)CO, isolated products were also only 5-membered oxazolidinone derivative (7), containing its dehydrated derivative 8. The preferential formation of the 5-membered oxazolidinone ring system apparently indicated that this process (5-Exo-Trig ring closure) is more favorable than that of 6- or 7-membered ring derivative (3 or 9) by 6- or 7-Exo-Trig ring closure.

    ABSTRACT: The preparation of amide derivatives (4) by N-acylation of unprotected alpha-amino acids is easily achieved via readily available benzotriazolyl carboxylates (2a-d) or succinimidyl carboxylates (2e-f). These intermediates (2) are prepared from reaction of carboxylic acids (1) with 1-hydroxybenzotriazole (HO-Bt) or N-hydroxysuccinimide (HO-Su) in the presence of equimolar amounts of 1-ethyl-3-(3'-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide hydrochloride (WSCI). The overall yields of the target compounds (4) were excellent, and this two-stage procedure could be applicable as an alternative procedure for one-pot reaction.

    ABSTRACT: An efficient procedure for the preparation of 5-dialkylaminomethylhydantoins 3, which are easily obtained from cyclization of the corresponding urea derivatives 2 starting with beta-aminoalanines 1, is described. Methylenehydantoin and the corresponding 2-thio analogue (4a, 4b) were obtained from hydantoins 3a and 3b, respectively. Some new chemical properties of these hydantoin derivatives are reported.
