A de novo approach to partially acetylated dodecanyl rhamnoside derivatives, Cleistriosides and Cleistetrosides, which were isolated from Cleistopholis patens and Cleistopholis glauca and have significant antibacterial activity in vitro, was developed. This approach features a tin-mediated, palladium catalyzed regioselective glycosylation. Thus, Cleistetroside-2 was synthesized in 23 steps (5.9% total yield) from 2-acetylfuran.
