A stereocontrolled approach to functionalized acyclic β2,3- amino acid derivatives was accomplished from cis- or trans-2- aminocyclohexenecarboxylates derived from bicyclic β-lactam regioisomers. The transformations were based on oxidative ring cleavage through the ring C-C double bond of the cyclohexene β-amino esters, followed by functionalization of the dialdehyde intermediates with different phosphoranes. This stereospecific and stereocontrolled procedure was applied to the synthesis of acylic β2,3-amino acid derivatives functionalized with ester, nitrile, keto, alkyl or arylalkyl groups.
