The [3+2] cycloadditions of benzonitrile oxide or pivalonitrile oxide to methyl 4-O-acryloyl-6-deoxy-2,3-di-O-(t-butyldimethylsilyl)-α -D-glucopyranoside provided the respective adducts, each as virtually a single diastereomer. By reductive removal of the carbohydrate template from each adduct, the respective (R)-enriched Δ2-isoxazoline derivative was obtained.
