Hydrogenation, severally, of methyl 3-azido-2,3,6-trideoxy-β-D-erythro-hex-5-enopyranoside, its 3-benzamido analogue, and methyl 2,6-dideoxy-β-D-threo-hex-5-enopyranoside in the presence of palladium-on-barium sulphate gave the corresponding 6-deoxy-β-D-hexopyranoside derivatives. Stereoselective addition of hydrogen was observed in each case. Methyl 2,6-dideoxy-β-D-arabino-hexopyranoside was also prepared by reductive dehalogenation of methyl 3,4-di-O-benzoyl-6-bromo-2,6-dideoxy-β-D-arabino-hexopyranoside.
