Title

NMR use in total synthesis of serotype 8 of Staphylococcus aureus

Abstract

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance is a very powerful tool in organic chemistry synthesis. It allows you to confirm the chemical transformations of molecules are actually the right transformation with the correct conformations. The synthesis of sugar molecules requires the use of many protecting groups as well as confirmation of desired coupled intermediates. NMR helps in the elucidation of the stereospecificity and stereoselectivity of your products. Here I present some examples of how NMR is a very useful tool in the total synthesis of serotype 8 of Staphylococcus aureus.
