A Novel Process Foramides Synthesisamides Synthesis
The present technology provides with an amidation reaction of unprotected a-amino acids in water under neutral conditions with various aliphatic, aromatic and heteroaromatic amines in the presence of coupling reagent l,l'-carbonyldiimidazole (CDI) at ambient temperature to obtain the corresponding a-amino acid amides. This method offers a novel way for amidation of unprotected a-amino acids in one pot reaction. The said amidation reaction can be performed on free as well as hydrochloride salts of amino acids and the sidechain functionality was found to be relatively unaffected by the reagent and reaction conditions. Moreover,the reaction was found to be stereo-conservative in nature, and no apparent racemization of the final products was observed.
