Reaction of benzylpenilloic acid (1) with N,N’-diphenylethylenediamine (2) in mixture of water, acetic acid and toluene under reflux yielded D-penicillamine (4). In a similar way, 4 was also obtained from benzyl- and phenoxymethylpenicilloic acid α-amides (6a-f) and benzylpenicillin potassium salt (13). The structures of the byproducts formed in these reactions were also determined.
