Design of Knölker‐type catalysts for the anomeric oxidation of unprotected mono‐ and disaccharides

Abstract

Knölker complexes have been recently used to perform the catalytic C1‐oxidation of unprotected sugars into sugar lactones. This oxidation method remained limited by the stability of the catalyst with the polyhydroxylated substrates. Our objective is now to overcome these limitations and extend this method to more challenging substrates such as disaccharides. We proposed in this paper two original designs of Knölker‐type complexes conceived to promote secondary H‐bond interactions with the OH groups of the substrates to stabilise the system and favour the transformation. In total, 8 novel pre‐catalysts were synthesised, fully characterised and applied in the anomeric oxidation of several sugar derivatives. Two of these new complexes proved to be more efficient than the Knölker complex for the oxidation of disaccharides. Moreover, a preliminary DFT study revealed the presence of H‐bonds interactions between the substrate and the oxygen atom on the ligand arm of the best complexes suggesting a beneficial role of this heteroatom on the catalytic efficiency.
