  • Patent number: 5334746
    Abstract: A process for the preparation of .alpha.-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester in high yield, which comprises the steps of esterifying L-phenylalanine with methanol while undergoing continuous evaporation to remove the water formed during esterification, coupling the produced L-phenylalanine methyl ester with N-formyl-L-aspartic anhydride, deformylating the produced N-formyl-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester, crystallizing the formed .alpha.-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester as .alpha.-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester hydrochloric acid salt, recovering the first .alpha.-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester hydrochloric acid salt, esterifying .alpha.-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine in the filtrate to produce the second .alpha.-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester, and combining the first and second .alpha.-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester product.
