Starting from carboxy-linked amino acids on trityl functionalized polystyrene resin a highly efficient solid-phase synthesis of hydantoins via N, N˘-ureas was elaborated. The polymer-bound hydantoins can be used as scaffolds for further combinatorial transformations, such as alkylation. Cleavage from the resins yielded the corresponding hydantoins in good yields and purities as shown by ESI-MS and HPLC.
