Abstract

A new and efficient three-step synthesis of (R)-2-(3-chlorophenyl)propan-1-amine is reported, which serves as an intermediate in the synthesis of the antiobesity drug lorcaserin. The key step is a chiral resolution due to the formation of a salt with l-(-)-3-phenyllactic acid. The structure of the relevant salt phase is reported.
