The objectives of this research problem were divided into several parts. The first objective was to develop a practical method of preparing 2,6-diamino-2,6-dideoxy-galactose. A second objective was to investigate the derivatives of benzyl-N-carbobenzoxy-α-D-galactosaminide. FInally, the third objective was to lay the groundwork for another possible route for the synthesis of 2,6-diamino-2,6-dideoxy-galactose other than the uronic acid route.
