A synthesis of α-oxygenated β-amino acid derivatives using an aldol-type addition is described. Depending on the enol equivalent different oxidation states of the oxygen substituent are accessible, while choosing a chiral imine allows to generate the aldol product in a stereoselective manner. This methodology has been applied to the synthesis of the biologically active compound Telaprevir, used in the traetment of Hepatitis C.
