Abstract

The reaction of azido sugars with triphenylphosphine and carbon dioxide leading to cyclic carbamates has been studied by means of PM3 semiempirical quantum chemical computations to elucidate the detailed mechanisms of chemical processes involved in this transformation. Our results clearly indicate that the mechanism involving an isocyanate intermediate is preferred for both α-and β-anomers. In addition, we find that, in the case of the α-anomer, steric hindrance prevents the occurrence of direct cyclization and requires the opening of the pyranose ring, in contrast to the case of the β-anomer. This result explains the poor yield and the occurrence of three isomeric cyclic carbamates when the reaction is performed on the α-anomer.
