An efficient method for the synthesis of long-chain α,ω-diamino acids, starting from natural α-amino acids, has been developed. The long-chain skeleton has been generated through condensation between a protected aldehyde, derived from L: -aspartic acid, and an ylide obtained from an ω-hydroxy-alkyl phosphonium salt. After conversion of the ω-hydroxy group into an amine, catalytic hydrogenation produced the N,N'-protected α,ω-diamino acid. The present route to α,ω-diamino acids allows the modulation of the chain length depending on the length of the ylide used for the Wittig olefination reaction.
