Synthesis of N-p-[di(2-chloroethyl)amino]phenacetylvalylmethionine diastereomers


  1. 1.

    A preparative method has been developed for obtaining diastereomers of N-p-[di(2-chloroethyl)-amino]phenacetylvalylmethionine from enantiomers of N-p-fdi(2-chloroethyl)amino]phenacetylvaline and the corresponding antipodes of methionine benzhydryl ester with the aid of N-ethoxycarbonyl-2-ethoxy-l-2-dihydroquinoline.

  2. 2.

    The synthesis of these diastereomers by the carbodiimide, mixed-anhydride and activated N-hydroxy-piperidyl ester methods is accompanied by appreciable racemization.
