Two novel iminosugars called nojiristegines, being structural hybrids between nor-tropane alkaloid calystegine and nojirimycins, have been synthesised and found to be stable molecules despite the presence of a hemiaminal functionality. The synthesised iminosugars were evaluated against a panel of glycosidases and the best inhibition (IC50), found against α-glucosidases, was in the micromolar region. The compounds were also evaluated as potential antibiotics but no useful level of activity was observed.
