Diastereomeric fortimicin 1,2-epoxides. The preparation of the 1-deamino-2-deoxyfortimicins A and B and the 1,2-di-epi-fortimicins A and B.


The preparation of 1,2-anhydro-2',6'-di-N-benzyloxycarbonyl-1-deaminofortimicin B-4,5-carbamate (4) and its conversion to the two diastereomeric 2',6'-di-N-benzyloxycarbonyl-1-deamino-2-deoxy-1,2-epoxyfortimicin B-4,5-carbamates 7 and 13 are described. The olefin 4 was used for preparation of 1-deamino-2-deoxyfortimicin A (6d) while the beta-epoxide 13 was… (More)
