The fragmentation of anomeric alkoxyl radicals (ARF) and the subsequent intramolecular cyclization promoted by hypervalent iodine reagents provide an excellent method for the synthesis of tetrazolo-sugars. This new reaction offers additional advantages for the synthesis of these compounds, including the ready availability of the starting materials,(More)
The reaction of specifically protected anhydroalditols with (diacetoxyiodo)benzene or iodosylbenzene and iodine is a mild and selective procedure for the synthesis of chiral 6,8-dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane and 2,7-dioxabicyclo[2.2.1]heptane ring systems under neutral conditions. This reaction can be considered to be an intramolecular glycosidation that goes(More)
[reaction: see text] The alkoxy radical generated by reaction of 3,7-anhydro-2-deoxyoctitols with (diacetoxyiodo)benzene (DIB) and iodine abstracts regioselectively either the proton at C7 or that at C4 depending on the electronegativity of the substituent at C4. The correct election of this substituent can switch the reaction to give(More)
The ability of the guanidinylating reagent N',N''-diBoc-N-triflyl-guanidine (GN-Tf) to react with in situ formed free amines from azides in carbohydrate scaffolds was explored. This reaction proved to be an efficient method to prepare guanidine derivatives in a one-pot manner with good to excellent yields, either with primary or secondary azides with(More)
A new general methodology for the synthesis of 1,1,1-trihaloalditols by starting from 1,5-anhydro-2-deoxy-hex-1-enitol derivatives (glycals) is described. The halogens are introduced sequentially in each of the three different steps of the process. The fluorine is introduced in the first step by electrophilic fluorination of the starting glycal; next,(More)
A series of anomeric nitrate esters and N-phthalimido glycosides of carbohydrates in furanose and pyranose forms have been synthesized in order to generate the corresponding alkoxy radicals and study the C1-C2 fragmentation reaction under reductive conditions. This reaction constitutes a two-step method for the transformation of carbohydrates into the(More)
