Abstract

The coupling reaction of 3,4,6-tri-O-acetyl-alpha-D-glucopyranoside 2-O-lactone 1 (alpha-CMGL) with two kinds of lipophilic amines, aminosteroids and fatty amines, efficiently yielded, after deprotection, the corresponding free alpha-glucolipid amides. The latter family of compounds exhibited good thermal stability, allowing the higher homologs having longer linear fatty chains or saturated steroids to possess lamellar smectic A phases.
