Abstract: Derivatives of azidosugars were shown to be stable under conditions of trityl-cyanoet-hylidene condensation. Tritylated 1,2-O-(1-cyano)ethylidene derivative of 2-azido-2-deoxy-β-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→4)-L-rhamnopyranose was used as a starting material for the synthesis of [→3)-β-D-ManNAc-(1→4)-α-L-Rha-(1]n, the O-specific polysaccharide of Pseudomonas aeruginosa X (Meitert).
