Total synthesis of deoxymannojirimycin and D-mannolactam via carbonylation of 5-vinyloxazolidin-2-ones

Academic Article


  • The stereoselective synthesis of piperidine alkaloids deoxymannojirimycin and D-mannolactam from D-serine has been achieved. The key step involves palladium-catalysed decarboxylative carbonylation of a serine-derived 5-vinyloxazolidin-2-one to give 6-(tert-butyldimethylsilyloxymethyl)-3,6-dihydro-1H-pyridin-2-one which was subsequently converted into the title compounds. © 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd.
