The synthesis of a series of 3-hydroxyproline benzyl esters from α-alkyl and α-alkoxy N-protected aminoaldehydes with benzyl diazoacetate is described. Aldehydes with α-alkyl substituents afforded prolines as a single diastereomer with a trans-cis relative configuration in 14−77%. An α-tert-butyldimethylsilyloxy aminoaldehyde afforded a proline as a single diastereomer with a trans-trans relative configuration in 37% yield.
