    A set of phosphodisaccharides, structural analogues of the beta-D-galactosyl-(1-->4)-alpha-D-mannosyl phosphate 1, are synthesized using the Koenigs-Knorr method for the glycosylation reactions and the glycosyl hydrogenphosphonate method for phosphorylation. The compounds were tested as acceptor substrates/putative inhibitors for the Leishmania alpha-D-mannosylphosphate transferase.
