The chiral amino alcohol HOC6H4CH(NH2)C(C6H5)2OH (4) that is derived from (R)-4-hydroxyphenylglycine has been converted into novel soluble and insoluble polymer-bound reagents 5. After in-situ conversion into oxazaborolidines, they serve for enantioselective reductions of acetophenone to deliver (S)-1-phenylethanol (6) in up to 83% enantiomeric excess.
