Synthesis of (R)-Lactic Acid and (2R,5R)-2-tert-Butyl-5-methyl-1,3-dioxolan-4-one
MetadataShow full item record
A convenient procedure for the synthesis of very expensive (R)-lactic acid from relatively inexpensive (R)-alanine is described. Its subsequent conversion into a chiral dioxolanone can be carried out by using an inexpensive pivalaldehyde–tert-butanol mixture.
