Abstract

A very efficient enzymatic method was developed for the synthesis of new enantiomeric benzocispentacin and its six- and seven-membered homologues through the Lipolase (lipase B from Candida antarctica) catalyzed enantioselective (E > 200) ring opening of 3,4-benzo-6-azabicyclo[3.2.0]heptan-7-one, 4,5-benzo-7-azabicyclo[4.2.0]octan-8-one, and 5,6-benzo-8-azabicyclo[5.2.0] nonan-9-one with H2O in iPr2O at 60°C. The (1R,2R)-β-amino acids (ee ≥ 96%, yields ≥ 40%) and (1S,6S)-, (1S,7S)-, and (1S,8S)-β-lactams (ee > 99%, yields ≥ 44%) produced could be easily separated. The ring opening of racemic and enantiomeric β-lactams with 18% HCl afforded the corresponding β-amino acid hydrochlorides.
