Abstract

An efficient multicomponent domino process that works under mild conditions was used for the synthesis of systematically modified neomycin–sugar conjugates. The final aminoglycoside derivatives were tested against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella, and E. coli strains, and show activity comparable to the parent antibiotics. Such a strategy can impact multicomponent combinatorial syntheses of diverse biologically active conjugates.

  • 33 The cyclization was unexpected for the mild conditions used. We have found only one literature example of an intramolecular reaction between a urea and an ester leading to the formation of a dihydrouracil ring, promoted by phosphoric acid at 100 °C for 17 h; see: Uneyama K, Makio S, Nanbu H.
