Abstract: Hydrogenphosphonate approach previously used for the 6-0-(glycosylphospho)-sugar synthesis is found to be efficient for the synthesis of (1–2)-, (1–3)-, and (1–4)-linked mannosyl phosphomannoses which may serve as models for various fragments of natural poly(glycosyl phosphates). Glycosylphosphitylation of suitable monohydroxyl derivatives with 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzyl-α-D-mannopyranosyl H-phosphonate in pyridine in the presence of Me3CCOCl, followed by oxidation of the H-phosphonate diesters obtained (I2 in Py–H20), resulted in fully protected phosphate diesters in 70–87% yields. Deprotection of these derivatives by standard procedures lead to deblocked glycosyl phosphosugars. The data of 1H, 13C, and 31P NMR spectra of the synthesized, phosphate diesters are discussed.
