Current Research involves the synthesis of ally-galactosamine dervivatives for incorparation into glycopeptide synthesis. Starting with commercially availible galactosamine, per-acetylation and anomeric substitution has been completed on large scale. Several intermediates for oligosaccharide synthesis has also been obtained in large quantities (see figure). These glycosides will be used in the synthesis of di and trisaccharide units for incorparation into peptides.
