you can form the isocyanate of your amine using triphosgene and
triethylamine. The reaction takes 10 mins to get to completion. The
important thing is that you must get rid of the excess of triphosgene after
the formation of the isocyanate. You can probably purify the isocyanate by
Flash cromatography without using MeOH.
Add then your N-Boc-ethanolamine and reflux.
It may require several hours, but it works.
