C-Nucleosides. 16. A Synthesis of 1,5-Benzodiazepin-2-one Homo-C-nucleoside through Condensation of 1,2-Diaminobenzene with 5-Hydroxy-5-(2,3,5-tri-O-benzoyl-β-D-ribofuranosyl)furan-2(5H)-one

The novel ring transformation of 5-hydroxy-5-(2,3,5-tri-O-benzoyl-β-D-ribofuranosyl)furan-2(5H)-one (1) with 1,2-diaminobenzene to 1,5-benzodiazepin-2-one is described. Treatment of 1 with 1,2-diaminobenzene followed by dehydrgenation with 2,3-dichloro-5,5-dicyano-p-benzoquinone (DDQ) and p-toluenesulfonic acid afforded 4-[1-(2,3,5-tri-O-benzoyl-β-D-ribofuranosyl)-oxo]-1,3-dihydro-2H,-1,5-benzodiazepin-2-one (2) as the major product. A possible mechanism for this reaction is proposed. The removal of the sugar protecting groups in 2 afforded the deprotected homo-C-nucleoside (5).
