A series of α-amino ketones were reduced using asymmetric transfer hydrogenation (ATH) through a dynamic kinetic resolution (DKR). The protecting group was matched to the reducing agent, and following optimization, a series of substrates were investigated, giving products in high diastereoselectivity, over 99% ee in several cases and full conversion. The methodology was applied to the enantioselective synthesis of an MDM2–p53 inhibitor precursor.
