Lipopolysaccharides (LPSs) play key roles in humoral immunity. Recently, the LPS structure of the Psychrobacter cryohalolentis K5T strain was reported. Due to the presence of unnatural amino sugars and branched linkages, its structure is unique. Herein we report the total synthesis of an LPS analogue of P. cryohalolentis K5T. After overcoming the issues like ring conformation changes and elimination of triflate, we were able to develop a strategy for the synthesis of the newly reported 2,3,4-triacetamido-2,3,4-trideoxy-l-arabinose derivative. Coupling of different donors with suitable acceptors from the nonreducing end to the reducing end and further functional group modifications delivered the protected LPS hexasaccharide repeating unit. After functional group modifications, we were unable to oxidize the hindered primary hydroxyl group to synthesize the target molecule. Alternatively, removal of the permanent protecting groups afforded the LPS hexasaccharide repeating unit analogue of Psychrobacter cryohalolentis K5T.
