Abstract

Intramolecular 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions of nitrones formed from 3-O-allyl-D-glucose and D-altrose (both with threo-configuration at C-2,3) afford oxepanes selectively whereas the same reactions of nitrones derived from 3-O-allyl-D-allose and D-mannose (both with erythro-configuration at C-2,3) give tetrahydropyrans selectively.
