N-phthaloyl derivatives of aliphatic α-amino acids were synthesized using phthalanhydride under standard conditions. The optimization reaction carried out by the thermal method to obtain the amides of these N-phthaloyl amino acids resulted in transimitted rather than amidation. The target amides of N-phthaloyl-α-amino acids were obtained by acylation of the amine with the corresponding acid chloroanhydrides in dichloromethane. These results were compared with the results of a similar acylation in a non-polar solvent (benzene). The dependence of the direction of the reaction on the duration of the acylation and the amount of amine used was established. The conditions for the formation of the corresponding N-phthaloyl-α-amino acid amides and asymmetric phthalic acid diamides were found. It is noteworthy that the formation of diamides is directly proportional to the equivalent amount of amine and the duration of the reaction, which makes it possible to purposefully control the synthesis in one reactor.
