An efficient and practical one-pot protocol for the reduction of b-nitro alcohols to their corresponding N-(tert-butoxycarbonyl) amino alcohols using Zn 13NH4Cl in aqueous methanol is described. Other reducible groups such as ketones and isolated double bonds remained intact. This methodology allows a short synthesis of (�)-b-conhydrine to be achieved.
