The title compounds, 1a and 1b, have been synthesized in a three-step sequence starting from (-)-(S) and (+)-(R)-propylene oxide, respectively, in acceptable overall yields. The enantiomeric excess values for 1a and 1b were 96% and 93% respectively, as assessed by HPLC analysis on a chiral stationary phase of the corresponding N-acetyl derivatives. The synthetic route herein presented may represent a facile entry to highly enriched mexiletine enantiomers, alternative to those previously reported in the literature.
