Application

(S)-(-)-α-Methylbenzylamine along with 2-formylphenylboronic acid has been used in a derivatization protocol to analyze the enantiomeric excess of chiral diols.
It can also be used:
  • In the diastereoselective synthesis of S-aminonitriles.
  • As a chiral auxiliary in the synthesis of (S)-(-)-N-acetylcalycotomine or (R)-(+)-N-acetylcalycotomine.
  • As a chiral building block in the asymmetric synthesis of 1-substituted tetrahydro-β-carbolines.
Used in a one-pot, multi-component synthesis of a highly substituted, chiral pyrrole.
