The synthesis of the disaccharide 2-O-(3-O-carbamoyl-α-D-mannopyranosyl)-L-gulopyranose has been achieved in good yield via the silver triflate promoted coupling of 2,4,6-tri-O-acetyl-3-O-(N-acetylcarbamoyl)-α-D-mannopyranosyl bromide (7) with both benzyl 3,4,6-tri-O-benzyl-β-L-gulopyranoside (5) and 3,4-di-O-benzyl-1,6-anhydro-β-L-gulopyranose (12).
