A total synthesis of o-erythro-sphinganine [(2S,3R)-2-aminooctadecane-1,3-diol] starting from commercial N-tert-butyloxycarbonyl-L-serine methyl ester is described. The approach is based on the completely stereoselective preparation of an alpha-amino epoxide obtained by treating a protected L-serinal derivative with dimethylsulfoxonium methylide. The oxirane synthon is obtained with an anti configuration fitting the (2S,3R) stereochemistry of the 2-amino-1,3-diol polar head of D-erythro-sphinganine.

Abstract

A total synthesis of o-erythro-sphinganine [(2S,3R)-2-aminooctadecane-1,3-diol] starting from commercial N-tert-butyloxycarbonyl-L-serine methyl ester is described. The approach is based on the completely stereoselective preparation of an alpha-amino epoxide obtained by treating a protected L-serinal derivative with dimethylsulfoxonium methylide. The oxirane synthon is obtained with an anti configuration fitting the (2S,3R) stereochemistry of the 2-amino-1,3-diol polar head of D-erythro-sphinganine. The synthetic procedure afforded the target compound in a 68% overall yield based on the initial amount of the starting L-serine material
