Condensation of Amino Acides Using 1,1’- Carbonyldiimidazole

Typical Procedure:
To a solution of N-Cbz-glycine (2.09 g, 0.010 mol) in dry THF (10 mL) is added 1,1’-carbonyldiimidazole (CDI) (1.62 g, 0.010 mol). After stirring for 1.5 hour, L-tyrosine ethyl ester (2.09 g, 0.010 mol) is added to the solution and the reaction mixture is stirred overnight. Then THF is removed by an evaporator and 1 N-HCl (50 mL) is added. Cooling of the solution gives a solid. This is washed with water and 5% NaHCO3. The solid is filtered and washed with water again. After drying, the product is recrystallized from 50% ethanol to give ethyl N-Cbz-glycine- L -tyrosine ethyl ester (3.79 g, yield 95%).
