Regioselective epoxide ring opening of 2(I),3(I)-(2(I)S)-anhydro-alpha-cyclodextrin (1) through intramolecular attack of hydroxyl groups of neighboring glucose rings occurs in diequatorial fashion to yield 3(I),2(II)-anhydro-alpha-cyclodextrin (3) with a rigid glucopyranose-dioxane-glucopyranose tricyclic ring system, the usual diaxial opening and the(More)
