The general approach will be as follows: 1) preparation of the prochiral intermediates of malonic acid by using tert-Butylchloromethylsulfide 2) Using esterase to perform a desymmetrization of the prochiral intermediates 3) Analysis of the resulting chiral half ester intermediates 4)Formation of different amino acids from that half ester by using different common organic synthetic pathway.
