Bicyclic iminosugar derivatives with an ether bridge bearing different substituents on C-2 and the nitrogen atom have been synthesized from a C-glycoside bearing an isopropylidene acetal. The activities of these compounds were investigated against several glycosidase enzymes and showed moderate inhibition and activation.

    ABSTRACT: Two bicyclic iminosugars have been synthesized from polyhydroxylated azepanes by ring isomerization followed by debenzylative cyclization. Their conformations have been studied by NMR and molecular modeling and their glycosidase inhibition profiles were determined. They both adopt a chair conformation for the piperidine ring and display weak inhibition on α-glucosidases.

    ABSTRACT: Nitrogen-containing macrocyclic compounds (amines, amides, and N-heterocyclic derivatives) are important targets in supramolecular chemistry. This chapter discusses the importance of aza-macrocycles in general and, in particular, those receptors containing sugar unit(s). The combination of a carbohydrate scaffold bearing nitrogen-containing functional groups in macrocyclic molecules opens a convenient route to chiral receptors having potentially useful properties. The carbohydrate-based macrocycles discussed are classified into several general groups: (1) aza-crown ethers containing a carbohydrate subunit, (2) cyclic homooligomers from amino sugars, (3) sugar-based cryptands, (4) cyclic peptides containing amino sugar units (including C2- and C3-symmetrical macrocyclic glycopeptides), (5) nitrogen- containing glycophanes, and (6) 1,2,3-triazoles containing synthetic cyclodextrin analogues. The general strategies employed, as well as specific ones leading to such complex derivatives, are surveyed. Applications of such carbohydrate receptors, pointing to their importance as hosts in supramolecular chemistry, are discussed. © 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
