tert-Butyl N-[(S)-3-isopropyl-2-oxo­oxetan-3-yl]carbamate

Abstract

The structure of the title compound, C11H19NO4, contains two crystallographically independent mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit. Both adopt the same conformation and they form pseudosymmetric R 2 2(8) dimers via two N—H(...)O hydrogen bonds. The dimers are linked by weak C—H(...)O inter­actions and are stacked in columns along the a axis.

Comment

Over the last 20 years, much attention has been focused on β-lactones, because their occurrence in many natural biologically active compounds (Lowe & Vederas, 1995). N-Cbz-serine and threonine β-lactones have been found as a new class of hepatitis A virus 3 C cysteine proteinase inhibitors (Lall et al., 2002).

The crystal structure of the title compound, (I), is related to this area of interest. The title compound - useful and versatile intermediate in the synthesis of β-substituted α-alkyl alanines was prepared according to standard procedure (Olma & Kudaj, 2005).

The asymmetric unit in the crystal structure of (I) contains two molecules. Both molecules in (I) are practically identical. The pairs of the molecules are connected into the same motif as observed in the structures of other N-protected-α-amino-β-lactones (Sieroń, et al., 2008; Smith & Goodman, 2003). Therefore the molecules are connected in pesudocentrosymmetric dimers via N–H···O hydrogen bonds, forming eight-membered rings described by the R22(8) graph-set motif (Etter et al., 1990) (Fig. 1). In the crystal of (I) dimers are stacked down the α-axis in columns.

Experimental

The title compound was synthesized by treating complex of triphenylphosphine (525 mg, 2 mmol) and diethyldiazadicarboxylate in dry tetrahydrofurane with solution of Boc-(S)-iso-propylserine (N-Boc-(S)-hydroxymethylvaline) in dry THF (670 mg, 2 mmol) at 0°C. After stirring 1 h at 0°C and then 16 h at room temperature, THF was removed in vacuo and the crude product was purified by flash chromatography on silica gel 60 (230–400 mesh) using ethyl acetate-n-hexane (1:1) aseluent.The N-Boc-(S)-α-benzylserine lactone was obtained in 92% yield. White crystals of N-Boc-(S)-α-iso-propylserine lactone suitable for X-ray investigation were grown from chloroform, m.p. 403–404 K.

Refinement

In the absence of significant anomalous scattering effects, Friedel pairs were merged. The absolute configuration was assigned consistent with the starting material. All H atoms were included in calculated positions and treated as riding, C–H = 0.96–0.98 and N–H = 0.86 Å with Uiso(H) = 1.2 or 1.5Ueq(C) and 1.2Ueq(N).

Special details

Geometry. Bond distances, angles etc. have been calculated using the rounded fractional coordinates. All su's are estimated from the variances of the (full) variance-covariance matrix. The cell e.s.d.'s are taken into account in the estimation of distances, angles and torsion angles
Refinement. Refinement on F2 for ALL reflections except those flagged by the user for potential systematic errors. Weighted R-factors wR and all goodnesses of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The observed criterion of F2 > σ(F2) is used only for calculating -R-factor-obs etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R-factors based on ALL data will be even larger.
