dc.description.abstractThe first chemical synthesis of disaccharides, octyl 5-O-(4-deoxy-4-thio-⍺-D-arabinofuranosyl)-⍺-D-arabinofuranoside 1 and octyl 5-O-(4-deoxy-4-thio-β-D-arabinofuranosyl)-⍺-D-arabinofuranoside 2 incorporating 4-deoxy-4-thioarabinose is described. Designed to mimic components of mycobacterial arabinogalactan, a major and essential constituent of the cell wall of tuberculosis and related bacteria, the compounds may disrupt cell wall biogenesis. A variety of coupling methods have been investigated before finding satisfactory techniques useful for thiofuranoses. Reductive deprotection of the sulfur-containing species is problematic, though lithium naphthalenide has proved to be an effective technique.en_US
