Abstract

Substituted β-lactams can be synthesized by a variety of methods some of which are stereocontrolled and diastereoselective. Because of their high chemical reactivity and their propensity for molecular rearrangement, these β-lactams can serve as efficient syntnons for racemic or optically active forms of diverse types of natural products such as carbohydrates, alkaloids, amino acids and oligopeptides.
