An arabinogalactan-type double-branched octa- and two isomeric nonasaccharides were synthesized using the (2-naphthyl)methyl (NAP) and the acid sensitive but base stable (methoxydimethyl)methyl (MIP) protecting groups. The β-(1→6)-linked hexagalactan skeleton was synthesized having a benzyl and a (2-naphthyl)methyl (NAP) group at positions 2 of the second and the penultimate galactopyranosyl units, and this made possible sequential introduction of α-L-arabinofuranosyl or α-L-arabinofuranosyl-(1→5)-α-L-arabinofuranosyl side chains.
