Abstract

Our strategy for the stereoselective C-C bond formation in carbohydrates is based on intramolecular radical cyclization reactions and offers three major advantages in comparison with the intermolecular processes: a) a more efficient C-C bond formation b) a higher stereoselectivity due to the exclusive formation of a cis ring junction c) only a stoechiometric amount of the radical acceptor (C=C, C≡C) is necessary (in contrast with the large excess normaly used in the intermolecular processes).
