A solid-phase synthesis of N-ami­nodipeptide derivatives via the Mitsunobu protocol was developed. Thus, the reaction of (S)-α-hydroxy acids 1 with a Wang resin using DIC followed by the deprotection of the resulting THP esters 2 gave the α-hydroxy esters 3. The Mitsunobu reaction of 3 with (S)-α-aminohydrazine phthalimide 4 afforded the polymer-supported esters 5. TFA-mediated cleavage of 5 gave the N-aminodipeptide derivatives 6a-j in 21-55% yield with excellent diastereomeric purity (>95% de).
