Condensation of 3-phenylsulfonyl-4-chlorocoumarin with tert-butyl L-pyroglutamate potassium salt followed by desulfonylation and ester-cleavage yielded the novel crystalline N-(coumain-4-yl)-L-pyroglutamic acid [CPYRO-OH], which being evidenced to be a versatile and reliable 1H nmr optical purity determination agent for chiral alcohols and amines.
