- A concise, highly stereoselective synthesis of 2,4- and 2,5-disubstituted thiazole amino acids was developed. These are important building blocks for various biologically active thiazole-containing natural peptides and their regioisomeric analogues. The fundamental reactions are diastereoselective addition of (4- or 5-bromothiazol-2-yl)lithium to N-tert-butanesulfinyl imine with subsequent Pd-catalyzed phenoxycarbonylation.
