An aldol-based approach to the asymmetric synthesis of L-callipeltose, the deoxyamino sugar of L-callipeltoside A.


PMID 11574013

Abstract

[reaction: see text] The L-callipeltose subunit of L-callipeltoside A has been synthesized in 10 steps and 13% overall yield from D-threonine. The key steps are a highly diastereoselective Felkin anti aldol addition to a methyl ketone and a selective methylation of a secondary alcohol in the presence of a secondary carbamate.
