Tetra-O-acylated sulfolipids are metabolites found in the cell wall of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis. Their role in pathogenesis remains, however, undefined. Here we describe a novel access to model tetra-O-acylated trehalose sulfate derivatives having simple acyl chains. The trehalose core was regioselectively protected using a tandem procedure with catalytic iron(III) chloride hexahydrate and further desymmetrized. Model chiral fatty acids, prepared by a zinc-mediated cross-coupling, were incorporated into the trehalose core. The enantiomeric excess of the chiral fatty acids has been measured by natural abundance deuterium (NAD) 2D-NMR spectroscopy in a polypeptide based chiral liquid crystal. The synthetic approach established for the model compounds can easily be developed for the preparation of other analogues and natural sulfolipids.
