A series of N-(β-d-glucopyranosyl)amides 5d-i were synthesized by PMe3 mediated Staudinger reaction of O-peracetylated β-d-glucopyranosyl azide (1) followed by acylation with carboxylic acids 3d-i and subsequent Zemplén deacetylation. The new compounds were tested for their inhibitory activity against rabbit muscle glycogen phosphorylase and the structure-activity relationships of these compounds are also discussed in this paper.
