Arabinofuranosides constitute one of the important components of cell wall structures of mycobacteria. With this importance of arabinofuranosides in mind, alkyl glycosides bearing arabinofuranoside trisaccharides were prepared, wherein the sugars were presented either in the monovalent or bivalent forms. Following the synthesis, the monovalent and bivalent alkyl glycosides were tested for their activities in a mycobacterial growth assay. The growth of the mycobacterial strain M. smegmatis was assessed in the presence of the alkyl glycosides and it was realized that the alkyl glycosides acted as inhibitors of the mycobacterial growth. The inhibition of the growth, caused by the above alkyl glycosides, was not observed for the arabinofuranose trisaccharide alone, without the alkyl groups, and for an alkyl glycoside bearing maltose as the sugar component.
