Welcome to SINTCARB! 

Our group aim to provide new answers to some classical problems in connection with the synthesis of oligosaccharides and glycosides and intend also to provide efficient methods for the synthesis of sphingosines, glycosphingolipids and glycoclusters, and tackle a biologically oriented research. In this sense the SINTCARB group has a broad experience in carbohydrate chemistry and also in transition metal catalyzed reactions and asymmetric catalysis.

, 2017, 19, 2687-2694. 

 The feasibility of using scCO2 for obtaining glycoconjugates has been demonstrated, performing metal–free glycosylations without VOCs as solvents

Enantioselective Formal Synthesis of Nectrisine

using a Palladium-catalyzed Asymmetric Allylic Amination and cross-metathesis as key steps

S. Soriano, M. Azzouz, J. Llaveria, P. Marcé, M. I. Matheu, Y. Díaz, S. Castillón*
J. Org. Chem. 2016, 81, 5217-5221.

A formal enantioselective synthesis of nectrisine, a potent α-glucosidase inhibitor, was carried out starting from butadiene monoepoxide through a synthetic sequence involving enantioselective allylic substitution, cross-metathesis, dihydroxylation and cyclization.
