the marked broadening of the corresponding "C-NMR signal at

Phosgene as a Reagent for the Enantiomeric
Resolution of 1,2- and 1,3-Diols, a-Amino Alcohols,
a-Hydroxy Acids, and N-Methyl-a-Amino Acids
by Gas Chromatography**
By Wirfried A . Konig*, Eberhard Steinbach, and
Karin Ernst
Isocyanates have proved to be versatile reagents for the
preparation of carbamate, urea, and amide derivatives of
chiral hydroxy, amino, and carboxy compounds which can
be resolved by gas chromatography[']. We now report on
the use of phosgene as a reagent for enantiomeric resolution. Phosgene-containing solutions react with a-amino alcohols (such as l ) to give the oxazolidin-2-one 2[*],with
1,2- and 1,3-diols to give the cyclic carbonates 3 and 4['11,
respectively, with a-hydroxy acids to give the 1,3-dioxolane-2,4-diones 5I4l, and with N-methyl-a-amino acids to
give the N-methyloxazolidine-2,5-diones615].
[ I ] J. E. Anderson, R. W. Franck,
On hindered rotation of the methyl groups only five protons would lead
to splitting, since one deuterium of the CD, group always adopts a position which would lead to coupling.
[I41 The similarity of 3'' and 4Beis also reflected in the size of the ESR
coupling constants of the y-protons (2.3 and 2.5 G in the case of 4'",
2.5-2.9 G in the case of 3O').

With 30-50 pL of phosgene solution (20% in toluene)
and between 0.1 and 1 mg of starting material in dichloromethane or ether, the reactions afford good yields at room
temperature in 30-60 min. When ammonium salts are
used, addition of a small amount of 0.5 M NaOH is advantageous. a-Hydroxy acids react particularly well in dioxane
in the presence of a trace of pyridine. The derivatives, obtained from racemic compounds, can be readily resolved
into their enantiomers by gas chromatography (glass or
fused silica capillary columns, stationary phase: polysiloxane XE-60-~-valine-(R)-a-phenylethylamide~~~)
(Table 1).
The derivatization proceeds without racemization.
Aliphatic 1,2- and 1,3-diols (Fig. 1)-frequently used
chiral building blocks for the synthesis of natural produ c t ~ " and
~ for which various enantioselective synthetic
methods have been developed[xl-could previously hardly
be resolved into enantiomers by gas chromatography; this
could only be achieved with aryl-substituted 1,2-diols via
perfluoroacylated derivatives'"'. Diols and a-amino alcohols with additional functional groups can also be resolved
as cyclic carbonates and oxazolidin-2-ones, respectively.
By this means, racemic tartaric acid and N-methylthreonine were resolved after esterification of the carboxy groups
with isopropanol and subsequent reaction with phosgene.
