Application

Used in the synthesis of HIV protease inhibitors.
(R)-4-Benzyl-2-oxazolidinone may be used as a starting material in the synthesis of enantiopure carbocyclic nucleosides. It may also be used as a chiral auxiliary in the enantioselective synthesis of (2R,2′S)-erythro-methylphenidate.
Versatile chiral auxiliary for asymmetric synthesis. For a recent review, see Aldrichimica Acta.
