Improved protocol for the formation of N-(p-nitrobenzyloxy)aminoalditol derivatives of oligosaccharides.


An improved procedure has been developed for the rapid derivatization of oligosaccharides with UV-detectable p-nitrobenzylhydroxylamine (PNB). The improved conditions used result in quantitative derivatization of neutral oligosaccharides. Sialylated oligosaccharides can also be quantitatively PNB-derivatized without detectable desialylation. Of the… (More)
