Carbohydr Res. 2001 Nov 21;336(3):181-94.Four glycosyl ceramides analogues having D-galactose or 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-glucose moieties linked to enantiomeric lipids have been synthesised to study their interfacial behaviour at the air/water interface. The lipid chains were prepared in two steps by opening 1,2-epoxyhexadecane using Jacobsen kinetic hydrolytic resolution (KHR) followed by an azidosilylation reaction of the diol so obtained. Read More
