The total synthesis of the trisaccharide of olivomycin A, which is one of the aureolic acid antitumor antibiotics, has been achieved. Our approach involves highly stereocontrolled glycosidations using 2,6-ahnydro-2-thio glycosyl donors. The 2,6-anhydro-2-thio trisaccharide 21 was constructed from 4 and 5, and then converted into the 2,6-dideoxy trisaccharide of olivomycin A 3 by hydrogenolysis and deprotection.
