Novel Acetoxylation and C−C Coupling Reactions at Unactivated Positions in α-Amino Acid Derivatives

Under special conditions, <i>N</i>-phthaloyl-α-amino acid amides of 8-aminoquinoline can be either acetoxylated or arylated selectively at the β-carbon. In certain cases, arylation can be effected at the γ-carbon.
