Prebiotic carbohydrate synthesis: zinc–proline catalyzes direct aqueous aldol reactions of α-hydroxy aldehydes and ketones

Author affiliations

Abstract

Zn–proline catalyzed aldolisation of glycoladehyde gave mainly tetroses whereas in the cross-aldolisation of glycoladehyde and rac-glyceraldehyde, pentoses accounted for 60% of the sugars formed with 20% of ribose.
