Syntheses, X-ray, MSn, NMR and CD structure determination of nickel(II) complexes of Schiff bases of (S)-N-(2-benzoylphenyl)-1-benzylpyrrolidine-2-carboxamide and aromatic α-amino acids

A preparative procedure for the synthesis of an important chiral synthon of side-chain protected tyrosine was developed and optimised for the minimisation of nickel salts waste. While preparing a similar side-chain protected tryptophan synthon, an unexpected low stability was found of the Boc-protective group of the tryptophan aromatic nitrogen during purification on silica gel. X-ray crystal structure determination, tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) and NMR were applied for the elucidation of the structures of the prepared complexes and by-products. Stereochemistry of products of α-methylation of the complexes was assessed using a model tyrosine-derived compound.
