    Abstract

    A polycondensation of 2,3,6-tri-O-benzoyl-4-O-(2,3,4-tri-O-benzoyl-ß-D-galactopyranosyl)-a -D-mannopyranosyl hydrogenphosphonate in the presence of trimethylacetyl chloride has been used to synthesize a linear poly[ß-D-galactopyranosyl-(1?4)-a-D-mannopyranosyl phosphate] representing the phosphoglycan part of the lipophosphoglycan from Leishmania donovani.
