(±)-Validamine and its epimers, (±)-2-epi-validamine (DL-5a-carba-α-mannopyranosylamine) and (±)-2-epi-3-epi-validamine (DL-5a-carba-α-altropyranosylamine) were synthesized from a poly-functionalized bicyclolactam that obtained by a base-catalyzed Diels-Alder reaction of N-tosyl-3-hydroxy-2-pyridone and methyl acrylate. All isomers were prepared via a common key intermediate in six or seven steps.
