Four 1,2,3-triazole-substituted ethyl 2-amino-3-hydroxycyclopentanecarboxylate diastereomers (3,4-disubstituted cispentacins) with a cyclopentane skeleton were prepared in enantiomerically pure form from racemic β-lactam 7 via enzymatic ring opening, epoxidation and selective ring opening of the oxirane ring with sodium azide. The formation of the 1,2,3-triazole ring system involved click chemistry: 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of the corresponding 4-substituted azidocarboxylates with diethyl acetylenedicarboxylate.
