Fusobacterium nucleatum, a colorectal-cancer-associated oncomicrobe, can trigger or accelerate numerous pathologies. We report the first synthesis of a conjugation-ready disaccharide containing six amino groups from F. nucleatum ATCC 23726 O-antigen. Rare 2,3-diamido-d-glucuronic acid amide and 2-acetamido-4-amino-d-fucose were synthesized from d-glucosamine through configuration inversion, nucleophilic substitution, C6 oxidation, and C6 deoxygenation. A judicious choice of protecting groups and reaction conditions enabled the selective installation of N-acetyl, N-propanoyl, N-formyl, and carboxamido groups.
