Graphical Abstract:


The pseudo-trisaccharide allosamidin 1 is a potent inhibitor of all family 18 chitinases, and it is confirmed to have insecticidal and antifungal activities. However, the synthesis of allosamidins is very difficult, and it is a challengeable subject. Allosamidins were synthesized in solid/liquid phase and total solid phase, respectively. Solid/liquid-phase method realizes the partial solid-phase synthesis of allosamidins. Total solid-phase method greatly simplifies the purification process. Moreover, it indicated that the inhibitory activity of N,N'-diacetyl-β-chitobiosylallosamizoline 9 against chitinase from Bombyx mori was a little weaker than that of allosamidin 1.

Keywords: Allosamidins, solid/liquid-phase synthesis, total solid-phase synthesis, chitinase inhibitory activity, comparison.
