Abstract: A good yield of crystalline pseudoaldobiouronic acid derivative /// was obtained by allowing to react 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-acetyl-l-bromo-l-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranose with methyl(methyl 3,4-0-isopropylidene-a-D-galactopyranosid)uronate under the condi­tions of modified Königs—Knorr synthesis of glycosides. The alcoholic hydroxyl groups in /// were regenerated by selective deisopropylidenation and subsequent deacetylation giving the crystalline methyl ester methyl glycoside V Methylation of V with methyl iodide and silver oxide in N,N-dimethylformamide, which gave the crystalline title derivative VII as the main product, was accompanied by a β-elimination reaction forming the olefinic disaccharide X. Olefin X was also synthesized and obtained crystalline by directed β-elimination reaction of /// followed by methylation of the deacetylated, crystalline olefin IX. The structures of VII. X and their synthetic precursors were confirmed by mass spectrometry.
