Practical synthesis and crystal structure of GlcNAc-thiazoline

Richard A. Huhn, Thomas J. Emge, and Spencer Knapp. Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ

An improved route to the GlcNAc-thiazoline triacetate (3) is described, including the results of screening Lewis acids for acetylation of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (1) and methods for thionation of pentatacetate (2). The crystal structure of the 2,4-dinitrobenzenesulfonate salt of (3) will also be presented.
