Abstract

A novel protocol for the asymmetric synthesis of 3-hydroxy-2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-2,3-dihydro-1,5-benzothiazepin-4(5H)-one is reported. Darzens condensation reactions of anisaldehyde with dichloroacetates, followed substitution reaction of sodium o-nitrophenylthiolate and bakers' yeast reduction furnished 2-hydroxy-3-(4-methoxyphenyl)-3-(2-nitrophenylsulfanyl)-propionates. Further reduction of a nitro group and cyclization gave the title compound.
