Cyclopropanation of Unsaturated Sugars with Ethyl Diazoacetate

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    The cyclopropanation of unsaturated sugars with ethyl diazoacetate and a metal catalyst provides ester-substituted 1,2-C-methylene carbohydrates in good to excellent yields. Ring opening of the cyclopropane has also been achieved providing C-2 branched glycosyl bromides.
