Abstract: The title compound, C8H15NO7, the methyl carbamate of -D-glucosamine has been synthesized, in moderate yield, from the reaction of -D-glucosamine hydrochloride and methyl chloroformate. There are two crystallographically independent molecules in the asymmetric unit. In both molecules, the pyranose ring adopts a slightly distorted chair conformation. In the crystal structure, molecules are packed along the a axis, with intra- and intermolecular O-HO, N-HO and C-HO hydrogen bonds.
