Addition of amines to pyranosyl nitrile oxides, generated by base-induced dehydrochlorination of the corresponding hydroximoyl chloride, affords pyranosyl N-alkyl/aryl-formamide oximes (41-90%). Reaction with amino acid esters yields the corresponding amidoximes and/or 3-pyranosyl-1,2,4-oxadiazin-6-ones. The structure of N-phenyl-C-(2,3,4-tri-O-acetyl-β-D-xylopyranosyl)formamide oxime was established by X-ray crystallography.
