Abstract

There are described two routes to the synthesis of N-(1-deoxyd-fructos-1-yl) derivatives of l-valine, l-leucine, l-methionine, l-phenylalanine, and 6-aminohexanoic acid. One route involved reductive amination of d-arabino-hexos-2-ulose in the presence of sodium cyanoborohydride; yields were limited by the formation of significant quantities of N-(1-deoxyhexitol-1-yl)amino acids, which were difficult to remove. this drawback was overcome in the second route, which involved reductive amination of 2,3:4,5-di-O-isopropylidene-aldehydo-β-d-arabino-hexos-2-ulo-2,6-pyranose; following a deblocking step, N-(1-deoxy-d-fructos-1-yl) derivatives of the aforementioned amino acids were obtained in yields which were at least double those reported for the current procedure involving the reaction of an amino acid with d-glucose, and an Amadori type of rearrangement of the resulting d-glucosylamine.
