Solid-phase chemoenzymatic synthesis of C-sialosides

J Org Chem. 2004 Oct 1;69(20):6900-3. doi: 10.1021/jo0491298.


The chemoenzymatic regioselective acylation of Neu5Ac followed by SmI2-mediated C-glycosylation on a solid support is described for five C-glycosides. This method should facilitate the construction of combinatorial libraries of inhibitors of neuraminidase activity and hemagglutinin interaction as potential antiviral agents.
