Aminoalcohols are very important compounds used in various asymmetric transformations as chiral ligands or chiral auxiliaries. In this thesis, four novel heterocyclic amine substituted chiral 1,4-aminoalcohols were synthesized. In the synthetic strategy, amide esters were synthesized from (2S, 3R)-3-methoxycarbonylbicyclo[2.2.1]hept-5-ene-2-carboxylic acid by DCC coupling method. Subsequent reduction of these amide esters lead to target 1,4-aminoalcohols. The activities of these novel chiral 1,4-aminoalcohols were tested in enantioselective diethylzinc addition, Mukaiyama aldol and Diels-Alder reactions. The enantioselectivities were measured by HPLC. All the products were identified by H NMR and C NMR spectroscopy
