En route to sugar-alkaloid conjugates.


PMID 21592465

Abstract

After stereoselective addition of N-iodosuccinimide to glycals subsequent dehalogenation results in formation of N-glycopyranosyl succinimides. By UV irradiation both azepindiones and preferentially [5.3.1.0(2,6)] tricyclic oxalactams could be obtained. Their transformation into a number of novel sugar conjugates resembling some prominent alkaloid N-pyrrol components by thiation and reduction is reported.
