Intramolecular nitrile oxide-alkene cycloaddition of sugar derivatives with unmasked hydroxyl group(s).
TLDR
The INOC reaction, using chloramine-T, in the presence of silica gel, to generate nitrile oxides from oximes, proceeded smoothly to afford five- or six-membered carbocycles in good to excellent yields.
Carbocyclization of carbohydrates: diastereoselective synthesis of (+)-gabosine F, (-)-gabosine O, and (+)-4-epi-gabosine O.
TLDR
Exploitation of silica gel/chloramine T mediated intramolecular nitrile oxide-alkene cycloaddition (INOC) of sugar-derived oximes to carbocycles furnished the first synthesis of gabosine F from l-arabinose, thereby confirming its absolute configuration.
