2-(2-(tert-butoxycarbonyl) propanamido) acetic acid (NCA-AG) was for the first time prepared using a variation of the Leuchs method. All compounds were characterized using melting point, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), ultra violet spectroscopy (UV), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and electron spray mass spectroscopy (ESMS). The reaction was optimised to obtain the highest yield by varying the reaction conditions namely; solvent, lewis acid and temperature.
