Oxidative C-C bond cleavage of N-protected cyclic amines was achieved by using 70% HNO3 in trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) to afford ω-amino acid derivatives in high yields. The C-C bond cleavage reaction smoothly proceeded under aerobic condition with a simple procedure. The use of 70% HNO3 as an oxidant source enabled to conduct the reaction at a higher substrate concentration than that of the previous condition using NaNO2 in TFA. In addition, some ω-amino acids were obtained with improved reaction efficiency under the present reaction conditions.
