A stereodivergent synthesis of enantiopure 3,6-dihydro-2H-pyrans is presented. The addition of lithiated enol ethers to carbohydrate-derived nitrones afforded syn- or anti-configured hydroxylamine derivatives 4a-d that were cyclized under Lewis acidic conditions to yield functionalized dihydropyrans cis- or trans-5a-d containing an enol ether moiety. This functional group was employed for a variety of subsequent reactions such as dihydroxylation or bromination. Bicyclic enol ether 19 was oxidatively cleaved to provide the highly functionalized ten-membered ring lactone 20. The synthesized enantiopure aminopyrans 24, 26, 28 and 30 can be regarded as carbohydrate mimetics. Trimeric versions of 24 and 28 were constructed via their attachment to a tricarboxylic acid core.

    ABSTRACT: A stereodivergent synthesis of differently configured C2-branched 4-amino sugar derivatives was accomplished. The Lewis acid mediated rearrangement of phenylthio-substituted 1,2-oxazines delivered glycosyl donor equivalents that can directly be employed in glycosidation reactions. Treatment with methanol provided internally protected amino sugar equivalents that have been transformed into the stereoisomeric methyl glycosides 28, ent-28, 29, ent-29 and 34 in two simple reductive steps. Reaction with natural carbohydrates or bicyclic amino sugar precursors allowed the synthesis of homo-oligomeric di- and trisaccharides 44, 46 and 47 or a hybrid trisaccharide 51 with natural carbohydrates. Access to a bivalent amino sugar derivative 54 was accomplished by reaction of rearrangement product 10 with 1,5-pentanediol. Alternatively, when a protected L-serine derivative was employed as glycosyl acceptor, the glycosylated amino acid 60 was efficiently prepared in few steps. In this report we describe the synthesis of unusual amino sugar building blocks from enantiopure 1,2-oxazines that can be attached to natural carbohydrates or natural product aglycons to produce new natural product analogues with potential applications in medicinal chemistry.

    ABSTRACT: Colloidal gold particles with functionalized organic shells were applied as novel selectin binders. The ligand shell was terminated with different monocyclic carbohydrate mimetics as simplified analogs of the sLe(x) unit found in biological selectin ligands. The multivalent presentation of the sulfated selectin binding epitopes on the gold particles led to extremely high binding affinities towards L- and P-selectin and IC(50) values in the subnanomolar range. Depending on the ring size of the sulfated carbohydrate mimetic, its substitution pattern and its configuration, different selectivities for either L-selectin or P-selectin were obtained. These selectivities were not found for gold particles with simple acyclic sulfated alcohols, diols and triols in the ligand shell. In addition, the influence of the particle size and the thickness of the hydrophobic organic shell were systematically investigated.
