2-[(Benzoylamino carboxymethyl) amino] benzoic acid is a new carboxylic α,α-diamino diacid which was synthesized in very good yield through alkaline hydrolysis reaction of 2-[(1-benzamido-2-methoxy-2-oxoethyl)amino]benzoic acid after obtained this latter through N-alkylation reaction between methyl α-bromo glycinate N-benzoylated and 2-aminobenzoic acid. The structure of the prepared compounds were determined by spectroscopic methods: 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, and MS data.
Keywords: N-alkylation,α,α-diamino diacid, methyl α-bromo glycinate, alkaline hydrolysis reaction.
