The synthesis of chiral esters and amides with the involvement of asymmetric induction by using pure chiral
auxiliaries such as (1S, 2R, 5R) menthol and L-(+)-1-phenylethylamine is described. The chiral mono, di menthol esters
and mono amides of succinic acid were synthesized in good yields. These esters and amides were then subjected to metalation
and quenched with different alkyl halides to get α substitution to generate a new chiral center.
