Abstract: 2-Acetamido-2,6-dideoxy-3,4-di-O-acetyl-α-D-glucose and -galactose phosphates were synthesized from the corresponding Li-alkoxides and tetrabenzyl diphosphate followed by hydrogenolysis. The acetylated phosphates were converted into moraprenyl diphosphate sugars by the reaction with moraprenyl phosphoroimidazolidate followed by O-deacylation, and into uridine diphosphate sugars through interaction with uridine-5'-diphenyldiiphosphate followed by O-deacetylation.
