Abstract

Acylation of the alditols (2) obtained by sodium borohydride reduction of N-acetylneuraminic acid (Neu5Ac) (1) gives a mixture of lactones (3) and (4) which can be separated and deprotected without epimerization yielding pure samples of the diastereoisomeric N-acetylneuraminic alditols (5) and (6).
