Article title

Tert-butyl esters of 2,3-diaryl-3-arylaminopropanoic acids - stereoselective synthesis, isolation, spectroscopic and structural elucidation


Title variants

Languages of publication



A series of seven substituted tert-butyl esters of 2,3-diaryl-3-arylaminopropanoic acids has been synthesized, isolated, spectroscopically and structurally elucidated. An influence of the substituents on the spectroscopic characteristics and conformations is discussed using the data of the linear-polarized IR- (IR-LD), UV-spectroscopy and 1H-NMR. Theoretical quantum chemical calculations are carried out, with a view to explaining and supporting the experimental optical properties and the electronic structure. The stereoselective synthesis of the corresponding diastereoisomers is optimized, thus giving good yields (62-72%) and purity of the compounds
