Amino alcohols are a group of compounds that have both amino (-NH2) and hydroxyl (-OH) groups. Amino alcohols are important structural elements that are frequently found in pharmaceutical agents and biologically active natural products. Within SciFinder®, more than 350,000 reactions are currently listed with amino alcohols with secondary alcohols and primary amines function as reactants take place. This fact indicates the diverse potential of these compounds in the chemical industry. Chiral amino alcohols are commonly used as drug intermediates and chiral ligands due to their good coordination ability of N and O atoms. They are widely used in medicine, chemical industry, materials and asymmetric synthesis.
