1. Novel syntheses of optically active proline and ornithine from optically active glutamine are described.
2. Carbobenzoxy-L-glutamine esters were dehydrated to γ-cyano-α-L-carbobenzoxyaminobutyric acid esters with p-toluenesulfonyl chloride, phosphorous oxychloride or thionyl chloride.
3. Hydrogenation of γ-cyano-α-L-carbobenzoxyaminobutyric acid esters in aqueous solvent systems were effected by silk-palladium catalyst to yield mainly L-proline.
4. By hydrogenation in the presence of Raney nickel in non-aqueous solvent, L-ornithine was obtained.
