Accessible sugars as asymmetric olefin epoxidation organocatalysts: glucosaminide ketones in the synthesis of terminal epoxides.
- A systematically varied series of conformationally restricted ketones, readily prepared from N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, were tested against representative olefins as asymmetric epoxidation catalysts showing useful selectivities against terminal olefins and, in particular, typically difficult 2,2-disubstituted terminal olefins.
