Abstract
(3S,4S)-1-(t-Butoxycarbonylmethyl)-3-[(S)-1-(t-butyldimethylsilyloxy)ethyl]-4-(2-diazo-2-ethoxycarbonyl-1-oxoethyl)-2-azetidinone (14) was prepared from 4-styryl-2-azetidinone 7b via a sequence of reactions involving N-alkylation with bromoacetate, ozonolysis, oxidation, condensation with magnesium ethyl malonate, and diazo transfer reaction. (3S,4S)-3-[(S)-1-(t-Butyldimethylsilyloxy)ethyl]-4-(3-diazo-3-ethoxycarbonyl1-hydroxypropyl)-2-azetidinone (21) was also prepared from 4-formyl-2-azetidinone 5b via a sequence of reactions involving Wittig reaction, 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition with ethoxycarbonylformonitrile oxide, catalytic hydrogenation, and diazotization. However, the final cyclization of 14 or 21 to 1-hydroxycarbapenem or 1-hydroxycarbapenam by treating with $Rh_2(OAc)_4$ was unsuccessful.
