Synthesis of 2-iodoglycals, glycals, and 1,1'-disaccharides from 2-Deoxy-2-iodopyranoses under dehydrative glycosylation conditions.J Org Chem. 2007 Nov 09; 72(23):8998-9001.JO
Treatment of 2-deoxy-2-iodopyranoses under dehydrative glycosylation conditions afforded pyranose glycals, 2-iodoglycals, and 1,1'-disaccharides instead of the expected glycoside products. While the product distribution revealed that this reaction is very sensitive to the configuration of the 2-deoxy-2-iodopyranose, 2-iodopyranoid glycals can be obtained almost exclusively in good yields by employing 3,4-O-isopropylidene as a cyclic bifunctional protecting group. The behavior of 2-deoxy-2-iodopyranoses during the dehydrative elimination reaction has been analyzed in detail.
