    A set of phosphodisaccharides, substrate analogues, which will be used to study acceptor-substrate specificity of the Leishmania biosynthetic enzymes, are synthesized using the Koenigs-Knorr and trichloroacetimidate methods for the glycosylation reactions, S(N)2 nucleophilic displacement of a triflic ester for epimerization, and the glycosyl hydrogenphosphonate method for phosphorylation.
