Optically pure $C_2-Symmetric$ pyrrolidine amides (8) were synthesized from readily available 1,2:5,6-di-O-isopropylidene-D-mannitol (1). Cyclization of dimesylated hexitol (4) with benzyl amine gave an inseparable mixture of $C_2-Symmetric$ pyrrolidine amine derivative (5) as a major product, concurring with its cis isomer (6) as a minor product. The pyrrolidine amines (5,6) were converted to separable pyrrolidine amides (8,9) via free amine (7). Optical purity of desired $C_2-Symmetric$ pyrrolidine amide (8a) was determined with its Mosher derivatives (13,14) by their $^1H$ and $^{19}F$ NMR spectra.
