Banwell, Martin; Hungerford, Natasha; Jolliffe, Katrina


(-)-3-Dehydroshikimic acid (3-DHS, 4), a C7-building block now available in large quantity from corn syrup, has been converted into the sialic acid (-)-KDN (3) as well as its C-7- and C-8-epimers. (-)-Quinic acid can be used for the same purpose.
