Abstract
Aldol-type condensation reactions of alpha -monosubstituted selenoamides wi th a variety of aldehydes are examined to furnish beta -hydroxy selenoamide s in good to high yields. The use of selenoamides derived from dibenzylamin e exhibits high stereoselectivity. As for the reaction with aliphatic aldeh ydes selenoamides show better yields and selectivity compared with ordinary amides. Conversion of the resulting beta -hydroxy selenoamides to 1,3-amin o alcohols is also described.
