Partial synthesis of erychroside

  • I. F. Makarevich


The partial synthesis of erychroside from erysimin and D-xylose has been carried out with a yield of 22%. It has been shown that the condensation of erysimin with bromoacetylxylose takes place predominantly at the C4 equatorial hydroxyl of the digitoxose residue and to a considerably smaller extent at the C3 axial hydroxyl.
