D-Glucuronate and L-iduronate containing disaccharides related to the antithrombin-binding pentasaccharide of heparin, in which one of the sulfate esters is systematically replaced by a sodium sulfonatomethyl moiety, were synthesized. The sulfonic acid group was introduced by stereoselective radical addition onto the exomethylene moiety of the appropriate glycoside derivatives, and the resulting sulfonatomethyl glucosides were used as acceptors.
