Synthesis of daunosamine-containing disaccharides
Treatment of 2,3,6-trideoxy-1,4-di-O-(p-nitrobenzoyl)-3-(trifluoroacetamido)-l-lyxo-hexopyranose (1) with benzyl 2,3-dideoxy-d-glycero-pentopyranoside and p-toluenesulfonic acid gave a mixture of benzyl 2,3,6-trideoxy-4-O-p-nitrobenzoyl-3- (trifluoroacetamido)-l-lyxo-hexopyranoside (49%) and benzyl 2,3-dideoxy-4-O-[2,3,6-trideoxy-4-O-(p-nitrobenzoyl)-3-(trifluoroacetamido)-α-l-lyxo-hexopyranosyl]-d-glycero-pentopyranoside (4, 20 %). The structure of the disaccharide 4 was confirmed by a detailed, mass-spectrometric analysis in three modes, namely, negative- and positive-ion, chemical ionization, and electron impact. Similar treatment of the bis(p-nitrobenzoate) 1 with ethyl 2,3-dideoxy-d-glycero-pentopyranoside gave the ethyl glycoside and the desired disaccharide, showing that the transglycosylation is not restricted to benzyl glycosides. Removal of the p-nitrobenzoyl and the benzyl groups from 4 gave the disaccharide 2,3-dideoxy-4-O-(2,3,6-trideoxy-3-trifluoroacetamido-α-l-lyxo-hexopyranosyl)-d-glycero-pentopyranose. © 1979.
