The anticancer natural product Landomycin A has been of interest to the synthetic and biology community due to its potent anti tumor activity. Using our recently developed de novo approach to oligosaccharides, we have been pursuing the synthesis of the hexasaccharide portion of Landomycin A. Our successful approach to the trisaccharide portion of Landomycin E will be presented as well as our effort toward the total synthesis of Landomycin A.
