Synthesis of a thio analogue of n-propyl kojibioside, a potential glucosidase inhibitor.

The disaccharide alpha-D-Glc p-(1-S-2)-beta-D-Glc p-(1-OPr) 1, a thio analogue of alpha-D-Glc p-(1 --> 2)-alpha-D-Glc p-(1-OPr)(n-propyl kojibioside) in which the inter-glycosidic oxygen atom is replaced by sulfur, has been synthesized for evaluation as a potential glucosidase inhibitor. Glycosylation of the 2-thiol glucopyranosyl acceptor 4 with the… CONTINUE READING
