Abstract

Glycosylation of penta-O-acetyl heptopyranosyl trichloroacetimidate with the 3-OH acceptor, methyl 2-O-benzyl-4,6-O-benzylidene-7,8-dideoxy-α-D-manno-oct-7-enopyranoside, gave the desired α1-3-linked disaccharide in a 94% yield. The oct-enopyranoside moiety of the disaccharide was converted to the heptoside by oxidative cleavage with osmium tetroxide/NaIO(4) and subsequent reduction with NaBH(4). The resulting α1-3-linked heptose disaccharide was converted to a tricholoroacetaimidate derivative containing a benzoyl group at C-2. This donor was glycosylated with 2-(carbobenzoxyamino)-1-ethanol to give an α spacer-linked disaccharide derivative in a 90% yield. Zemplén deacylation of the derivative and subsequent hydrogenolysis gave a 2-aminoethyl glycoside of heptopyranosyl(α1-3)heptopyranose.
