New pseudopeptides possessing C2 symmetry and dihydroxyethylene core derived from (R,R)- tartaric acid and amino esters have been synthesized as potential inhibitors of HIV protease. The amino esters were chosen in order to interact with P1/P1 and P2/P2 subsites of the enzyme. The products were obtained in good yields without noticeable racemization.
