Stereoselective and efficient synthetic routes to pyrrolidines and amino alcohols anchored to chiral polysubstituted cyclobutane moieties have been developed from (-)-(S)-verbenone. These original frameworks, in particular the diamines and amino alcohols, are appropriate stabilisers of metallic nanoparticles, especially for the synthesis of ruthenium nanomaterials, which found catalytic applications in the hydrogenation of arenes and nitrobenzene derivatives to afford selectively the corresponding cyclohexane or aniline derivatives.
