Synthesis of the Staphylococcus aureus Strain M Capsular Polysaccharide Repeating Unit

The synthesis of the Staphylococcus aureus strain M capsular polysaccharide repeating unit is reported. A postglycosylation oxidation strategy was utilized for the construction of the α-galactosaminuronic acid linkages, relying on a stereoselective 2-azido-4,6-O-di-tert-butylsilylidene galactopyranoside donor, for which the selectivity was assessed by model… (More)
