Several analogues of vanchrobactin, a catechol siderophore isolated from the bacterial fish pathogen Vibrio anguillarum serotype O2 strain RV22, have been synthesized. The biological evaluation of these novel compounds showed that most of them are active as siderophores, as determined by growth promotion assays using the producer strain, as well as V.(More)
A promising new strategy for the transformation of nitrohexofuranoses into cyclopentylamines, based on intramolecular cyclization followed by controlled opening of the resulting 2-oxabicyclo[2.2.1]heptane derivatives, allowed the first total synthesis of a carbocyclic beta-amino acid and its incorporation into peptides. This strategy also afforded a new(More)
The title compound {systematic name: (2S,3R)-ethyl 3-[(3aS,4R,6S,6aS)-6-tert-butyl-dimethyl-silyl-oxy-2,2-dimethyl-per-hydro-furo[3,4-d][1,3]dioxol-4-yl]-2-nitro-3-[(S)-tetra-hydro-2H-pyran-2-yl-oxy]propanoate}, C(23)H(41)NO(10)Si, is the product of the Henry reaction of 1-O-tert-butyl-dimethyl-silyl-2,3-O-isopropyl-idene-α-d-lyxo-penta-dialdo-1,4-furan-ose(More)
A novel methodology has been developed to obtain enantiopure 2-C-glycosyl-3-nitrochromenes. First, (Z)-1-bromo-1-nitroalkenes were prepared from the corresponding sugar aldehydes through a sodium iodide-catalyzed Henry reaction with bromonitromethane followed by elimination of the resulting 1-bromo-1-nitroalkan-2-ols. In the next step, reaction of the(More)
A chromium-mediated novel synthesis of carbohydrate-derived di- and trisubstituted (E)-α,β-unsaturated esters or amides from a range of dichloroesters or amides and a variety of sugar aldehydes is reported. The process took place with total stereoselectivity and in high yields. A mechanism based on a sequential chromium-promoted aldol-type reaction and a(More)
A novel promising strategy for the transformation of nitrosugars into branched pyrrolidines, based on double Henry reaction with formaldehyde followed by reductive ring closure, allowed the first enantiospecific synthesis of a 4-C-hydroxymethyl branched derivative of the well-known glycosidase inhibitor 1,4-dideoxy-1,4-imino-pentanol. This strategy also(More)
The crystalline form of 1-deoxy-D-tagatose, C6H12O5, is shown to be 1-deoxy-alpha-D-tagatopyranose; the absolute configuration is determined by use of D-lyxono-1,4-lactone as the starting material. The title compound crystallized as concomitant polymorphs from a mixture of ethyl actate and methanol. Although the melting points of the materials differ by 7(More)
The bacterial fish pathogen Vibrio anguillarum serotype O2 strain RV22 produces the mono catecholate siderophore Vanchrobactin (Vb) under conditions of iron deficiency. Vb contains two potential bidentate coordination sites: catecholate and salicylate groups. The iron(III) coordination properties of Vb is investigated in aqueous solutions using(More)
Indium nitronates were readily prepared from commercially available nitroalkanes by transmetallation of the corresponding lithium nitronates with indium salts. The Henry reaction of this indium organometallics with aldehydes afforded β-nitroalkanols in moderate to high yields. The use of chiral sugar aldehydes furnished the corresponding(More)
