New derivatives of serinol, 3-[4-(2-chloroethoxy)benzyloxy]-2-phthalimidopropan-1-ol and 3-[4-(2-azidoethoxy)phenoxy]-2-phthalimidopropan-1-ol, were synthesized and tested as glycosyl acceptors in stereoselective 1,2-cis-galactosylation in the benzyl-free synthesis of analogs of α-linked galactosylceramides. It was found that NIS/AgOTf-promoted glycosylation of 3-[4-(2-chloroethoxy)benzyloxy]-2-phthalimidopropan-1-ol with ethyl 4,6-O-(di-tert-butylsilylene)-1-thio-β-D-galactoside resulted in both the expected α-linked diastereomeric glycosides and the product of iodination of the benzyl group of the aglycon. This process was avoided by using the corresponding galactosyl imidate under Et3SiOTf promotion to give exclusively α-linked diastereometic serinol glycosides.
