Two isomeric partially acetylated galactocerebrosides, s-D-galactopyranosyl (2,3,4-tri-O-acetyl)- and s-D- galactopyranosyl (2,4,6-tri-O-acetyl)-1'(3'-O-acetyl)ceramide, were prepared from galactocerebroside and sulfatide, re- spectively. Their galactofuranosylation produced s-D-galactofuranosyl-6- and s-D-galactofuranosyl-3-s-D- galactopyranosyl-1'ceramide, as demonstrated by 1 H and 13 C NMR spectra as well as by chemical means. 1 H and 13 C NMR spectroscopy.
