50_12i/2011Inside Cover: One-Pot High-Yielding Synthesis of the DPP4-Selective Inhibitor ABT-341 by a Four-Component Coupling Mediated by a Diphenylprolinol Silyl Ether (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 12/2011)

The dipeptidyl peptidase IV selective inhibitor ABT-341 was synthesized by an uninterrupted sequence of reactions in excellent yield with excellent diastereo- and enantioselectivity. Y. Hayashi et al. describe in their Communication on page 2824 ff. how a diphenylprolinyl silyl ether mediates the sequence of an asymmetric Michael reaction, a domino Michael/Horner–Wadsworth–Emmons reaction combined with a retro-aldol reaction, a base-catalyzed isomerization, an amide bond formation, and a reduction of the nitro group to an amine.
