General description

Kinetics of unimolecular gas-phase elimination of trimethyl orthovalerate has been investigated.

Application

Trimethyl orthovalerate has been used in the preparation of:
  • various 9-O-acyl derivatives of N-acetyl- and N-glycoloyl-neuraminic acid
  • 2-methyl, 2-ethyl, 2-propyl and 2-butyl-3-benzimidazolyl-4(3H)-quinazolinones

Various 9-O-acyl derivatives of N-acetyl- and N-glycoloyl-neuraminic acid, and O-(5-acetamido-3,5-dideoxy-D-glycero-alpha- and beta-D-galacto-2-nonulopyranosylonic acid)-(2----6)-O-beta-D-galactopyranosyl-(1----4)-D-glucopyranose were regioselectively synthesized by use of ortho esters. In addition, 5-acetamido-4-O-acetyl-D-glycero-D-galacto-2-nonulopyranosonic acid was prepared starting from the benzyl and methyl esters of N-acetylneuraminic acid.
