General description

D-(-)-Quinic acid, a plant metabolite, is chiral building block used in multistep chemical synthesis of natural compounds.

Application

D-(-)-Quinic acid has been used as a standard to determine the composition of organic acids in bitter gentian teas and in developing cranberry fruit by HPLC. It may be used in the preparation of 3,4-O-isopropylidene-3(R),4(S)-dihydroxycyclohexanone.
D-(−)-Quinic acid can be used as:      
  • A chiral selector electrolyte along with copper(II) sulfate. This electrolyte is utilized in chiral resolution DL-tartaric acid by ligand-exchange capillary electrophoresis method.        
  • A starting material in the synthesis of stereoisomers of 3,4,6-trihydroxyazepanes, 7-hydroxymethyl-3,4,5-trihydroxyazepanes, and 3,4,5-trihydroxyazepanes, as potential inhibitors of glycosidase.        
  • A precursor for the preparation of trihydroxy piperidine derivatives and (+)-proto-quercitol glycosidase inhibitors.

Several new stereoisomers of 3,4,6-trihydroxyazepanes and 7-hydroxymethyl-3,4,5-trihydroxyazepanes as well as known 3,4,5-trihydroxyazepanes were synthesized as potent glycosidase inhibitors from D-(-)-quinic acid in an efficient manner. The key step employs dihydroxylation of protected chiral 1,4,5-cyclohex-2-enetriols under RuCl3/NaIO4/phosphate buffer (pH 7) condition
