Abstract

(1S,2R)-1-amino-2-indanol, a key component of an HIV protease inhibitor is synthesized in four steps starting from indanone. The Mn(OAC)_3 mediated acetoxylation of indanone followed by fungus catalyzed hydrolysis of acetoxyindanone furnished optically pure \alpha-hydroxy indanone. Formation and enantioselective reduction of oxime ether of 2-hydroxyindanone afforded (1S, 2R)-1-amino-2-indanol in 97% {\it cis} selectivity.
