[reaction: see text] An enantioselective preparation of the four diastereomeric 3-amino-2,3,6-trideoxy-hexoses, key components of anthracycline antibiotics, has been developed. Sharpless catalytic asymmetric epoxidation of the (2E)-2,5-hexadien-1-ol, regioselective ring opening with azide, followed by convenient functional group transformations, afforded(More)
A new finite-state vector quantization (FSVQ) algorithm is developed based on state space optimization and the derailment prevention requirement. The proposed derailment-free FSVQ (DF-FSVQ) achieves good performance through (i) state space reduction, which allows a practical implementation of high-order FSVQ, and (ii) derailment free state transitions.(More)
The reactions of aryl-stabilized sulfur ylides with organoboranes has been studied under a variety of conditions. At 5 or -78 degrees C, the reaction with Et3B gave a mixture of the first and second homologation products, but at -100 degrees C, only the first homologation product was obtained even with just 1.1 equiv of Et3B. Under these optimized(More)
