Abstract

Efficient syntheses of four aminocyclitols are reported. Each synthesis is accomplished in eight steps starting from D-(-)-quinic acid. The key step involves a highly regioselective ring opening of epoxides by sodium azide.
Keywords: aminocyclitols; epoxides; glycosidase inhibitors; D-(-)-quinic acid; regioselective ring opening aminocyclitols; epoxides; glycosidase inhibitors; D-(-)-quinic acid; regioselective ring opening
