Mohammed M Matin, Priyanka Chakraborty, Muhammad S Alam, Mohammad M Islam, Umme Hanee,

Direct unimolar one-step valeroylation of methyl α-d-mannopyranoside (MDM) furnished mainly 6-O-valeroate. However, similar reaction catalyzed by DMAP resulted 3,6-di-O-valeroate (21%) and 6-O-valeroate (47%) indicating reactivity sequence as 6-OH>3-OH>2-OH,4-OH. To get potential antimicrobial agents, 6-O-valeroate was converted into four 2,3,4-di-O-acyl esters, and 3,6-di-O-valeroate was converted into 2,4-di-O-acetate. Direct tetra-O-valeroylation of MDM ... Read more >>
