A synthetic route to pyranoid epoxy-exo-glycals from D-glucose

2010 ARKIVOC  
A synthetic route to a pyranose derived epoxy-exo-glycal has been developed from D-glucose. An attempted, one-pot bromination-elimination-oxirane formation, protocol that had worked well on furanoses, resulted only in the generation of 2-bromo-C-1-methyl pyranoid glycals.
