Abstract: Synthesis of chiral derivatives of glyoxylic acid with special emphasis on N-glyoxyloyl-(2R)-bornane-10,2-sultam is presented. Investigation of glyoxylic acid chiral derivatives in various stereocontrolled organic syntheses showed their excellent ability to provide products of high optical purity. Application of our methodology to the synthesis of natural products and their analogs is presented.
