      Abstract:

      A two-step, direct asymmetric synthesis of the trifluoroacetate

      ammonium salt of boroproline is reported. (-)-

      Sparteine-mediated lithiation of N-Boc-pyrrolidine afforded

      N-Boc-aminoboronic acid in good yield and enantioselectivity

      as determined by HPLC (pinanediol ester). Deprotection

      using TFA yielded the ammonium salt; full characterization

      data are presented, and the structure in aqueous

      solution and the occurrence of a B-N species are discussed.
