The Amadori rearrangement was investigated for the synthesis of C-glycosyl-type neoglycoconjugates. Various amines including diamines, amino-functionalized glycosides, lysine derivatives, and peptides were conjugated with two different heptoses to generate non-natural C-glycosyl-type glycoconjugates of the d-gluco and d-manno series. With these studies, the scope and limitations of the Amadori rearrangement as a conjugation method have been exemplified with respect to the carbohydrate substrate, as well as the amino components.
