Iron salts have recently attracted considerable attention as inexpensive and environmentally friendly agents in a wide range of selective processes in organic synthesis, [1] and their use as Lewis acid in carbohydrate chemistry is well-documented. We will report a few remarkable transformations induced by iron (III) salts as a Lewis acid either under stoechiometric or catalyticconditions. The results are very concise preparations of important glyco-constructs.

In connection with ongoing work at the interface of chemistry and biology, we will present :

– An unprecedented a one-pot cascade of transformations induced by iron(III)-chloride hexahydrate, including acetal removal / C-C double bond isomerization / cyclization to adihydropyran / oxazoline formation on chiral substrates derived from the threecomponent borono-Mannich Petasis reaction.[2]

– A regioselective one-pot protection of carbohydrates, optimized on D-glucopyranosides, by using stable iron(III) chloride hexahydrate a single catalyst in a single reaction vessel. [3] Different building blocks, displaying different protecting group patterns areobtained in a single flask by fine-tuning the reaction conditions. This approach circumvents thenecessity of carrying out the time-consuming isolation and purification of intermediates.

– The use of catalytic amounts of Fe(III) triflate solvate for the efficient activation of the readily available the β-penta acetate of N-acetyl glucosamine in the direct and highly selective synthesis ofthe important GlcNAc β-glycoside motifs. [4]
