Abstract: Enantiomerically pure (R)-γ-amino-β-benzyl-β-methylbutyric acid, an acyclic β,β-dialkyl GABA derivative, is efficiently synthesised from (1S,2R,4R)-10-dicyclohexylsulfamoylisobornyl 2-cyanopropanoate by a sequence based on benzylation, Arndt–Eistert homologation and nitrile reduction. Benzylation of (1S,2R,4R)-10-dicyclohexylsulfamoylisobornyl 2-cyanopropanoate using potassium carbonate under not strictly anhydrous conditions occurs diastereoselectively to afford (1S,2R,4R)-10-dicyclohexylsulfamoylisobornyl (S)-2-cyano-2-methyl-3-phenylpropanoate, the key chiral intermediate from which the desired γ-amino acid is obtained in five steps in 65% overall yield.
