The first example of preparation of 6-(β-D-mannopyranosylamino)-9H- purine (8), whose N-glycosidic linkage corresponds to a natural antibiotic, spicamycin, by Pd-catalyzed coupling reaction of a mannopyranosylamine with 9-protected-6-chloropurine, followed by deprotection, is described. Its β- D-gluco isomer (11) was also synthesized. This work established the procedure to construct the novel N-glycoside, in which the pyranose unit is connected to the amino group at C(6) of adenine moiety.
