CAN 131:144537 AN 1999:369514 CAPLUS (Copyright (C) 2009 ACS on SciFinder (R)) Abstract Boron-mediated asym. aldol reactions of 4-[2-(2-benzoxazolylmethylamino)ethoxy]benzaldehyde with 2-oxyethanoyloxazolidinones contg. electron withdrawing, chelating, and bulky alkoxy and aryloxy groups, gave variable yields of syn-aldol adducts in high diastereoisomeric excess. These adducts were dehydroxylated in a sequence which complements the traditional Evans asym. alkylation strategy. Cleavage of the auxiliary from these intermediates afforded antihyperglycemic (S)-(-)-2-oxy-3-arylpropanoic acids in excellent enantiomeric excess. The target compds. were ?-alkoxy-4-[2-[(benzoxazolyl)amino]ethoxy]benzenepropanoic acid derivs. The biol. activity of the compds. thus prepd. was not reported here.
