Unnatural Amino Acids
Practical Asymmetric Synthesis of Tailor-Made α-Amino Acids
Hamari Chemicals, Ltd. is collaborating with Professor Vadim A. Soloshonok to develop innovative synthetic process for tailor-made amino acids. The ”Soloshonok-Hamari Ligand” is an ideal tool to produce various tailor-made amino acids at high efficiency.
Using these ligands and readily available racemic/natural amino acids, a variety of tailor-made amino acids can be synthesized with high stereoselectivity by chiral interconversion and/or functionalization at the α-carbon position. These ligands do not racemize, and are easily recovered and recycled to permit cost-effective large scale manufacture.
This technology is the ultimate advanced approach for tailor-made amino acids.
