The first total synthesis of three echinodermatous sialyl inositol phosphosphingolipids, which exhibit unusual neuritogenic activity in the absence of nerve growth factor, are reported. Highlights of the syntheses include 9-O-methylation on sialic acid, inter-residual amide bond formation between sialic acid residues, and highly stereo- and regioselective sialylation of inositol. A key phosphodiester linkage between the mono-, di-, and trisialyl inositols and ceramide was formed at a late state employing the phosphoramidite method.
