The present work consists of two parts. The first part contains the synthesis of 3,4,6-tri-o-benzoyl-D-glucopyranosido-[1,2:41,51]-21-oxazolidone (III) and the study of its chemistry in order to determine whether it could be used as a simultaneous protecting group for C1 and C2 in the preparation of new aminosugars. The second part covers the synthesis and de-o-benzoylation of β-D-glucosaminides. The products thus obtained can be used to prepare new disaccharides. In addition new aminosugar derivatives have been prepared.
