To facilitate the synthesis of paromomycin and/or neomycin analogues, we describe a cleavage of ring I from paromomycin that proceeds in the presence of azides and affords a glycosyl acceptor for the installation of a modified ring I. A paromomycin 4′,6′-diol is oxidized by the Dess–Martin periodinane followed by m-chloroperoxybenzoic acid. Base treatment then affords a protected pseudodisaccharide, which functions as a glycosyl acceptor. The method should also apply to the cleavage of pyranosyl 4,6-diols from oligosaccharides and glycoconjugates.
