Steric control of the asymmetric synthesis of N-substitued 2-methyl-4-piperidones
Transmission of the iodomethylate of 1,2-dimethyl-4-piperidone by (S)-sec-butylamine gives 1-(S-sec-butyl)-2S-methyl-4-piperidone in 33% optical yield while transamination by (S)-l-methyl-2-phenylethylamine gives a 1:1 diastereomeric mixture of 1-(l-methyl-2-phenylethyl)-2 -methyl-4-piperidone.The decrease in the optical yield is related to the facile opening of the piperidone ring at the C-N bond with subsequent recyclization. The13C MIR data indicate that all the diastereomers of the 4-piperidones obtained are in the chair conformation with predominantly equatorial orientation of the methyl group at C(2). The chiral optical properties were studied and the absolution configurations of the 4-piperidones obtained were established.
