Abstract

The reaction of 1,2-halohydrins derived from easily available carbohydrates with (diacetoxyiodo)benzene (DIB) in the presence of bromine is a mild procedure for the synthesis of 1-deoxy-1-halo-1-bromo-alditols with one carbon less than the original carbohydrate. The reaction goes through β-fragmentation of the intermediate anomeric alkoxyl radicals. These 1-halo-1-bromo polyhydroxy compounds may be valuable synthetic intermediates in organic synthesis.
