As a prelude to biomolecular incorporation studies, practical routes to a series of four regioisomeric azido-deoxy derivatives of inositol that mimic the natural myo-stereochemistry are described. Starting from commercially available myo-inositol, the regioselective and stereoselective introduction of azide functionality was achieved at the C-2, C-3, C-4, and C-5 positions via azide displacement of the corresponding O-sulfonates of suitably protected scyllo-, chiro-, epi-, and neo-inositols, respectively. Notably, a final one-pot acetolysis method conveniently allowed for rapid access to pentaacetate azido-deoxy inositols. Investigations on the metabolic incorporation of these myo-inositol azide surrogates in both acetate and free alcohol forms are in progress.
