Using a recently developed catalyst[Rh((R,R)-QuinoxP*)(cod)]SbF6, several derivatives of D-(R)-tyrosine were prepared with up to 99% ee via catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation. The substrates chosen for asymmetric hydrogenation were readily synthesized from the inexpensive and accessible compound 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde. The product resulting from the asymmetric hydrogenation was practically applied to the preparation of an important bioactive compound sodium (R)-3-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-2-hydroxypropanoate through a feasible process.

Key words: catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation, D-(R)-tyrosine, rhodium, biphosphine ligand, sodium (R)-3-(3,4-dihydr- oxyphenyl)-2-hydroxypropanoate
