Asymmetric Syntheses of (2R, 4S)-4-Amino-4-carboxy-2-methylpyrrolidine and (2R, 4S)-4-Amino-2-carboxy-2-ethylpyrrolidine as Novel 2-Alkyl-substituted (-)-Cucurbitine Analogues

Asymmetric syntheses of (2R,4S)-4-amino-4-carboxy-2-methylpyrrolidine (1) and (2R,4S)-4-amino-4-carboxy-2-ethylpyrrolidine (2) as 2-alkyl-substituted (-)-cucurbitine analogues, have been achieved without disturbing C2 stereogenic center through a route including a diastereoselective Bucherer-Bergs reaction of 2-methyl- and 2-ethenyl-4-oxopyrrolidines (10) and (24), easily derived from trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline.
