Regioselective Synthesis of Sucrose Monoesters as Surfactants,I. R. Vlahov, P. I. Vlahova, R.J. Linhardt, Journal of CarbohydrateChemistry, 16, 1-10, 1997.
A highly regioselective conversion of sucrose into 6-O-acyl derivatives is reported. First sucrose was transformed into the dibutyltin acetal, thus enhancing the nucleophilicity at the C-6 oxygen and restricting the subsequent acylation reaction. The surface activity properties of the sucrose monoesters obtained were determined and compared with those of commercially available ionic and non-ionic surfactants.
