Synthesis of carbohydrate derivatives using solid-phase work-up and scavenging techniques.
MacCoss RN., Brennan PE., Ley SV.
Methods to allow the clean preparation of oligosaccharides were investigated using techniques that do not require conventional column chromatography or an aqueous work-up. The route was designed to provide rapid access to oligosaccharides and is suitable for automation and parallel library formation. The research has focused on the glycosidations of a range of glycosyl acceptors with various selenophenyl glycosyl donors using iodine as an activator in the presence of DTBMP, a hindered organic base. Hydroxyl-containing contaminants were removed by scavenging with polymer-supported tosyl chloride.
