New procedures have been developed for the synthesis of the two important components of lipid A; one is the lipase-catalyzed resolution of 3-hydroxyteradecanoic acid in tetrahydrofuran using vinyl acetate and the other is the synthesis of the disaccharide moiety using glycosylphosphite as the glycosylating reagenL.
