This research is primarily interested in investigating the reactions of benzyl 2-amino-4,6-0-benzylidene-2- deoxy-D-glucopyranoside (I) with various esters. The advantage offered by this sugar is that an alcohol and an amine group are in close proximity, allowing studies of intermolecular vs. intramolecular reactions and observation on anchimeric assistance in intramolecular reactions.
