The disaccharide 1, tetraglycosyl monophosphate 2, hexaglycosyl diphosphate 3 and octaglycosyl triphosphate 4, which are fragments of the phosphoglycan portion of Leishmania donovani lipophosphoglycan, have been synthesized. Elongation of the chain was performed using the suitably protected glycobiosyl hydrogenphosphonate derivatives 5 and 6 for the successive introduction of glycobiosyl phosphate units.
