The conformational behaviour of ß-O-Gal-(1?1)-a-Man 4 and the C-glycoside, carbaglycoside and aza-C-glycoside mimics 1–3 has been studied using J/NOE NMR data, molecular mechanics and molecular dynamics. It is shown that the population distributions around the glycosidic linkages of the different analogues depend on the chemical nature of the acetal or pseudoacetal residue.
