7-Fluoro sialic acid was prepared and activated as cytidine monophosphate (CMP) ester. The synthesis started with d-glucose, which was efficiently converted into N-acetyl-4-fluoro-4-deoxy-d-mannosamine. Aldolase catalyzed transformation yielded the corresponding fluorinated sialic acid which was activated as CMP ester using three different synthetases in… CONTINUE READING
