Abstract: Iminosugars are one of the most interesting discoveries in the field of natural products recent years due to their promissing biological activity. We report synthesis of 1-deoxynojirimycin building block using D-glucose as the starting material and the [3,3]-sigmatropic aza-Claisen rearrangement as the key step of our synthesis.
Keywords: 1-deoxynojirimycin, azasugars, aza-Claisen rearrangement
