Useful reagent for synthesizing chiral amines.
Chiral auxiliary used in an asymmetric preparation of trifluoroethylamines by conversion of trifluoroacetaldehyde to a chiral imine followed by treatment with an aryl lithium and acidic methanolysis.
(S)-(-)-2-Methyl-2-propanesulfinamide may be used to develop benzofuran-based farnesyltransferase inhibitors as anti-cancer agents. It may also be used to prepare (20E)-N-[t-butyl-(S)-sulfinyl]-3β-(t-butyldimethylsilyloxy)-pregn-5-en-20-imine, an intermediate for the preparation of androgen receptor antagonists.
Can be readily transformed into P,N-sulfinyl imine ligands through condensation with aldehydes and ketones, which can undergo iridium-catalyzed asymmetric hydrogenation of olefins.
