Hydro-pyrimidinones ((2S,6R)-3) and ((2S)-6) were prepared from methyl crotonate via 3-aminobutanoate, and their corresponding lithium enolate and dienolate derivatives were added to various aldehydes. The high regio- and stereoselectivities observed in these aldol reactions pave the road for the preparation of enantiomerically pure β-hydroxy-β’-amino acids. The structures of the products were confirmed by X-ray crystal structure analysis (eight examples).
