Carbohydrates and Lipids: Synthesis and Outlook


Methyl iodide activated stereospecific α-mannosylations utilising 2-pyridyl-1-thiomannopyranoside derivatives (2,3,4) as donors and suitably protected myo-inositol derivatives (1,25,27,29) as acceptors to prepare 2-0-α-D-mannopyranosyl-6-[O-α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1–6)-O-α-D-mannopyranosyl-(l-6)-O-α-D-mannopyranosyl]-D-myo-inositol derivative (31) is described.
