The novel bifunctional compounds L1 and L2 carrying cluster glucosides as ligands for brain targeting liposomes were synthesized. 2-phenyl-1,3-dioxan-5-ol (8) and tetra-antennary alcohol (13) were used as the core scaffold to attach cholesterol derivatives by a triethylene glycol chain, while their remaining branches were linked with two or three benzylglucosides, which would be debenzvlated later to produce di-antennary glucosides L1 and tri-antennary glucosides ligand L2. This design provided an effective entry for the synthesized bifunctional compounds to cross blood brain barrier (BBB).
