dc.description.abstract Amino acids are important biological compounds and useful chemical reagents in many chemistry applications. The ongoing investigation of the synthesis of α-amino acids was done via a metallorganic reaction of imines using a titanium complex. Such reaction procedures required low temperature and a controlled anhydrous environment. The products were analyzed and characterized using 34 infrared spectroscopy and gas chromatographic techniques. Infrared spectra peaks confirm the presence of a carboxylic acid functional group. Further experiments are being conducted to further study α-amino acid synthesis. en_US
