The 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions of 1-methylenesugars (1a~c) with nitrones (2 and 5) were carried out diastereoselectively under the catalysis of BF3·Et2O at low temperature and afforded the α-stereoselective spiro ketosyl isoxazolidines in good to excellent yields. The reductive isoxazolidine ring-opening of the spiro moiety with the treatment of zinc and acetic acid resulted in a new kind of C-glycosyl amino acid possessing a ketose form, providing an access to C-glycosyl amino acids. The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by the spectroscopic analyses.
