Addition of a range of organocuprates to (S)-N,N′-bis(p-methoxybenzyl)-3-methylene-6-isopropylpiperazine-2, 5-dione 8 affords cis-3-isopropyl-6-alkyldiketopiperazines in excellent yield and >95% de. Subsequent deprotection and hydrolysis of these cis-3-isopropyl-6-alkyldiketopiperazines affords homochiral (S)-α-amino acids in excellent yield.
