The Mannich-like reactions of the enolates generated from 2,3-di-O-protected 6-deoxy-4-O-propionyl-α-D-glucopyranosides with (3R,4R)-4-acetoxy-3-[(R)-1-(t-butyldimethylsilyloxy)ethyl]azetidin-2-one were investigated. The corresponding 2,3-di-O-methyl derivative provided the Mannich adduct in good to excellent stereoselectivity. From the major adduct, the azetidin-2-one incorporating an α-methyl acetic acid side chain at the C-4 position with β-configuration was obtained by alkaline hydrolysis. This product, (3S,4S)-3-[(R)-1-(t-butyldimethylsilyloxy)ethyl]-4-[(R)-1-carboxyethyl]azetidin-2-one, is a useful intermediate for the 1β-methylcarbapenem synthesis.
