    An isosteric C-glycoside phosphono analogue of dec-9-enyl beta -D-galactopyranosyl-(1 -->4)-alpha -D-mannopyranosyl phosphate was synthesised and showed high biological activity in the Leishmania MPT assay. A one-step Horner-Emmons/Michael reaction was developed for the stereoselective preparation of cc-D-mannosyl methanephosphonate derivatives. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
