N2-(N,N-Dimethylaminomethylene)-3-[2-(4-nitrophenyl)ethyl]-1’,2’-di-O-trimethylsilyl-L-biopterin (6) was prepared from L-biopterin in 5 steps. Glycosylation of 6 with 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzoyl-α-D-glucopyranosyl trichloro-acetimidate (9) and 1,3,4,6-tetra-O-acetyl-2-phtalimido-β-D-glucopyranose (10) respectively afforded the corresponding 2’-O-(β-D-glucopyranosyl) derivatives (12b, 12c) as major products. Removal of protecting groups of 12c provided naturally occurring limipterin (2).
