D-mannosamine (2-Amino-2-deoxy-D-mannose) is a monosaccharide involved in a range of metabolic processes. In its N-acetyl form it is a constituent of neuraminic acids, glycolipids and glycoproteins.
D-Mannosamine hydrochloride is an important monosaccharide starting material for a range of important biologically functional derivatives; especially N-acylmannosamines and bioactive butyl esters.
Use of Chemical
D-mannosamine hydrochloride is used for the synthesis of sialic (N-acetylneuraminic) acid derivatives. It is also a synthetic intermediate for a number of carbohydrate-derived families of biologically active compounds and pharmaceutical candidates.
D-mannosamine is the preferred synthetic precursor of N-propanoyl mannosamine.
