An efficient protocol for the synthesis of novel glycosyl thiazole derivatives starting from the commercially available D-glucosamine hydrochloride was described by reaction of 1-(1,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzyl-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranos-2-yl)thiourea 8 with each of substituted α-bromoacetophenone in ethanol. 1-(1,3,4,6-Tetra-O-benzyl-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranos-2-yl)thiourea was an important intermediate, and its synthetic methods were discussed by comparing two different synthetic routes. Moreover, 2-isothiocyanate-1,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzyl-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranose was obtained in a new and convenient way. Finally, a series of novel glycosyl incorporated with thiazole moiety was synthesized in good purities and overall yields.

The numerous carbohydrates, which play an important role in living systems, are underscored by their high abundance and molecular diversity.
1 Sugars are not only regarded as structural support and energy storage molecules, but also vital potential drug in physiological and pathophysiological processes.2,3 Among these sugars, glucosamine has been paid great attention amongst synthetic chemists over the years, because of their diverse biological activities demonstrated. Glucosamine, a naturally occurring amino sugar, is a key component in a variety of biologically important glycoconjugates. It is found in several natural products such as tunicamycins and neomycin,4 which are used as antibiotics, and bacillithiol,5 which is used as bacterial antioxidants. Aside from the natural products, it is found in gastrointestinal mucosal membranes and the cartilage tissues. Thus, glucosamine plays a crucial role on cell recognition, adhesion6,7 and migration,8 cell-cell interaction9 and communication.10 It is well known as an alternative therapy for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA), which is a joint disease characterized by cartilage degeneration, joint paint and variable degrees of joint inflammation.11 Furthermore, D-glucosamine has been reported to exert anti-inflammatory acitivity12,13 and suppress tumer growth,14,15 and it could be effectively employed as an additive in health or functional food to alleviate oxidative stress.16 Recently it is found that glucosamine derivatives have been utilized as an efficient inhibitor for the Alzheimer’s disease.17
One of the successful and effective approaches in the search for new bioactive agents from natural products is to synthesize novel compounds by simple chemical modifications of naturally occurring lead compounds.
18 In order to obtain potential biological lead compounds, the modifications of D-glucosamine have gained great attention. The hydroxyl groups are the active sites for phosphorylation and glycosylation when the C(2)-amino is protected, and the 4-hydroxy group of N-acetylglucosamine derivatives nevertheless is a very poor nucleophile in glycosylation reactions.19 Masuko et al. reported the synthesis of N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphate and tested for their recognition by the GlmU uridyltransferase enzyme.20 Serpi et al. reported a novel series of O-4/O-3 N-acetyl-D-glucosamine phosphoramidates, which were able to significantly decrease the loss of glycosaminoglycan at noncytotoxic concentrations.21 Although the modifications of hydroxyl groups are common, reports on the functionalization of amino are rare, especially a heterocycle linked to the aminothiazole, one of the most important scaffolds in heterocyclic chemistry and drug design and discovery, plays vital roles in many biologically active compounds such as tiazofurin22 (antineoplastic agents) and ritonavir23 (anti-HIV drug). Thiazole containing compounds have reported to exhibit versatile biological activities such as antimicrobial,24 anti-inflammatory,25 antiviral and antiparasitic,26 antihistaminic properties, antiallergic.27 The recent reports have been declared that the presence of thiazole ring as a part of drug structure could be determinant for its physicochemical and pharmacokinetic properties. Taking into account the important role of thiazoles in various biological phenomena, we synthesized a series of novel glucosamine derivatives containing thiazole attached to the C(2)-amino group.
Various methods have been reported for the synthesis of thiazole derivatives such as Hantzsch synthesis, solid supported and solution phase. Recently, various catalysts are employed to synthesize thiazole derivatives like iodine,
28 silyl chloride,29 PEG,30 NaICl231 and ammonium chloride.32 But Hantzsch synthesis is most commonly used among these methods, which involves reaction of α-halo carbonyl compounds with thiourea or thioamides.33 Herein, a convenient and mild protocol for the synthesis of glycosyl thiazole derivatives was developed, which involved the reaction of glycosyl thiourea and substituted α-bromoacetophenone via Hantzsch synthesis. It is the first time to introduce thiazole ring to the glucosamine in a convenient way.

In the last few years, the thiourea is of interest as synthetic intermediate. The preparation of thiourea was achieved by the reaction of primary amine with thiocyanate directly. Our first attempt aimed at synthesizing the glycosyl thiourea by the reaction of thiocyanate with 2-amino-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranose. To our disappointment, the desired product was not obtained employing this method. We had to design a devious way in which the hydroxyl groups were protected at the beginning.
To accomplish the reaction on amino, the four hydroxyl groups should be under protection during the process. The benzyl group was selected to protect the hydroxy groups from a large number of the protection methods for the hydroxy group due to its versatile and stabilized for protecting hydroxyl groups in carbohydrate chemistry. The experiment steps are as follows: Firstly, the amino was protected by using
p-methoxybenzaldehyde to get Shiff base, then followed by the benzylation of the four hydroxyl groups with NaH and BnBr in DMF ranging from 0 °C to room temperature for 12 h, and at last the 2-amino-1,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzyl-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranose hydrochloride 3 was prepared after the hydrolysis of 2 by hydrochloric acid (Scheme 1).

To develop a simple way to the synthesis of compounds containing D-glucosamine and thiazole, glycosyl thiourea was an important intermediate in this reaction. Through long time probing, we have formed diversified studying methods about the synthesis of glycosyl thiourea. At the onset of the experiments, we envisaged that glycosyl thiourea could be obtained by amide bond cleavage of glycosyl acylthiourea under alkaline conditions. In this way, glycosyl acylthiourea must be synthesized at first. At the beginning of experiment, benzoyl chloride reacted with KSCN to afford benzoyl isothiocyanate using a few drops of PEG-400 as catalyst in the mixture of dichloromethane and acetone. Then 1-benzoyl-3-(1,3,4,6-tetra-
O-benzyl-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranos-2-yl)thiourea 6 was synthesized from benzoyl isothiocyanate and 2-amino-1,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzyl-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranose hydrochloride 3. To our delight, 6 was converted to 8 successfully by treatment with potassium carbonate in methanol under refluxing (Scheme 2). And 8 is a novel intermediate prepared for the first time.

However, 1-(1,3,4,6-tetra-
O-benzyl-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranos-2-yl)thiourea was synthesized by multi-step in low yield, the most important was that this method needed long time and difficult separation. Therefore, it is still highly expected to synthesis of 8 from readily available starting materials by convenient procedures in higher yield.
In a further experiment, the amino group of 2-amino-1,3,4,6-tetra-
O-benzyl-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranose hydrochloride was expected to converted into thiourea directly by simple steps. And in this way we tried to find a facile way to synthesis of 8 in high yield. According to this idea, we tried to turn the amino of 3 into isothiocyanates to improve reactivity. Isothiocyanates, a reactive functional group in chemical synthesis, which can be converted to thiourea easily, has higher reactivity compared with amino group. Numerous synthetic methods have been reported to convert readily available amines into the isothiocyanate analogue,34-36 but the employed reagents are often harsh, such as thiophosgene, which has high toxicity and incompatability with many functional groups, and there are very few reports available in which glycosyl isothiocyanate can be generated using a convenient and mild method. Herein, a facile protocol for the preparation of isothiocyanates from amine of D-glucosamine is reported. To a solution of 3 in acetonitrile was added triethylamine at 0 °C, followed by addition of carbon disulfide dropwise into the reaction mixture via bysyringe pump. The mixture was stirred for 2 h. Then tosyl chloride (TsCl) was added to the reaction mixture. For another 0.5 h, glycosyl isothiocyanate was provided in 90% yield from 4. It is the first time that the conversion between the amine of D-glucosamine and isothiocyanates has been studied by using this method. Treatment of 7 in methylene chloride at room temperature with ammonia, provided 6 in 95% yield from 7. The method have some advantages such as gentle reaction conditions, high yield and simple operation.

was brominated by CuBr2 under refluxing ethyl acetate and chloroform, and it was quite evident that the dark solvent changed into light green one with white CuBr after the reaction completed. The filtrate was extracted by water until the organic layer was transparent and without other dispose, 8 was put into the filtrate to afford 11 under refluxing for 15 min, which was a quite simple and convenient method to give 11 (Scheme 3). 1H NMR of 11 exhibited the signal for the anomeric proton at δ 3.88 with coupling constant of 9.4 Hz assigned as the β-anomer.

In conclusion, a series of novel glycosyl thiazole have been synthesized starting from D-glucosamine. Synthesis methods of glycosyl thiourea have been discussed by comparing two different synthesis routes. Although glycosyl thiourea was obtained by the hydrolysis of 1-benzoyl-3-(1,3,4,6-tetra-
O-benzyl-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranose-2-yl)thiourea by employing K2CO3, this route was time consuming and involved several complicated procedures. A new and effective approach for preparing glycosyl thiourea was introduced, which has characteristics of quickness, simpleness and high efficiency. In this route, glycosyl isothiocyanate, as an important intermediates, was synthesized using method of mild conditions, convenient operation and low toxicity. The target compounds have been prepared directly in good yields with glycosyl thiourea in hand.
