2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) is a feedstock chemical readily available from cellulosic biomass. Six chiral bisoxazolines varying in the steric size of the blocking group have been synthesized from FDCA in modest to good overall yields. The effectiveness of the new chiral bisoxazolines has been evaluated in enantioselective Diels-Alder reactions.
