A novel, mild, and efficient method was described to introduce a dibenzyl phosphate by ring opening of benzylglycidol mediated by Lewis acids. This methodology was used as a key step for synthesizing the dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) in only three steps with an overall yield of 74% from the commercially available racemic benzylglycidol.
Since Mycobacterium tuberculosis sets up several multiple anti-tuberculosis drug resistance mechanisms, development of new drugs with innovative target is urgent. The methylerythritol phosphate pathway (MEP) involved in the biosynthesis of essential metabolites for the survival of mycobacteria, represents such a target.
