A derivative of 6-epi-lincosamine has been prepared by a sequence of stereospecific steps from an optically active, cis-α-hydroxy-β-lactam. This β-lactam was obtained by an enantiospecific cycloaddition reaction between methoxyacetyl chloride, triethylamine and a Schiff base derived from benzylamine and an optically active aldehyde derived from D-galactopyranose.
