Abstract: Methyl α-D-glucopyranoside was easily prepared by the treatment of D-glucose with anhydrous methyl alcohol in presence of hydrogen chloride at freezing temperature in good yield. Then N- acetylsulfanilylation of methyl α-D-glucopyranoside has been carried out by the direct method and afforded the 6-O-N-acetylsulfanilyl derivative in an excellent yield. In order to obtain newer products, the 6-O-N-acetylsulfanilyl derivative was further transformed to a series of 2,3,4-tri-O-acyl derivatives containing a wide variety of functionalities in a single molecular framework. The chemical structures of the newly synthesized compounds were elucidated by Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), 1H-NMR (Proton nuclear magnetic resonance) spectroscopy elemental and physicochemical properties analysis. All the newly synthesized D-glucose derivatives were tested for their in vitro antibacterial activity against some human pathogenic bacterial strains. The study revealed that a good number of acylated products exhibited promising antibacterial activities. It is expected that the acylated derivatives of D-glucose may be considered as a potential source for developing new and better antibacterial agents against a number of pathogenic organism.
