Catalytic regioselective oxidation of glycosides.

Abstract

Discrimination among equals: A catalytic method for the selective oxidation of unprotected glycosides, both monosaccharides and disaccharides, has been developed. The resulting ketosaccharides are isolated in moderate to excellent yields. This approach provides a basis for protecting-group-free synthetic transformations of carbohydrates.
