Efficient procedures for the preparative synthesis of per-O-acyl derivatives of 4-(3-chloropropoxy)phenyl (CPP) glycosides of a series of common mono- and disaccharides (D-glucose, D-galactose, D-mannose, L-rhamnose, D-arabinofuranose, D-glucosamine, lactose) are described. The CPP glycosides obtained were transformed in almost quantitative yields to the corresponding unprotected 4-(3-azidopropoxy)phenyl (APP) glycosides, which could become next-generation Janus glycosides with cleavable spacer aglycon, ready for conjugation or further transformation.
