The glucuronide, glucoside and N-acetylglucosaminide conjugates of hyodeoxycholic acid were synthesized. In addition, murideoxycholic acid 3-glycosides and some of their C-5 epimeric analogs were also prepared. The principal reactions used are 1) the Koenigs-Knorr condensation reaction of 3-oxo-6a-hydroxy and 6-oxo-3a-hydroxy esters with an appropriate a-acetohalosugar catalyzed by cadmium carbonate in benzene under reflux, 2) reduction of the resulting bile acid glycoside methyl ester-acetates with tert-butylamine-borane complex, and 3) subsequent hydrolysis with aqueous lithium hydroxide.
