The blockwise synthesis of the pyruvated tetrasaccharide 4,6-(S)-pyruvic-acetal-β-d-GlcNAcp-(1→3)-α-d-Galp-(1→4)-β-l-Rhap-(1→4)-β-d-Glcp-O(CH2)5NH2 (32), related to the repeating unit of the capsular polysaccharide of Streptoccus pneumoniae type 27, by coupling of the suitably protected disaccharide blocks 4,6(S)-pyruvic-acetal-β-d-GlcNAcp-(1→3)-α-d-Galp-trichloroacetimidate (13) and β-l-Rhap-(1→4)-β-d-Glcp-O(CH2)5NHZ (29β) is described. The latter disaccharide acceptor was prepared via prearranged glycosides by intramolecular glycosylation of a protected 5-aminopentyl β-d-glucopyranoside linked by a succinyl bridge at C-3 to C-2 of ethyl 1-thio-α-l-rhamnopyranoside. The dependence of the anomeric selectivity of the coupling on the nature of the protecting group at C-4 of the rhamnosyl moiety is studied.
