Modulating glycosylation with exogenous nucleophiles: an overview

Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry
Shaheen K MulaniKwok-Kong Tony Mong


The major challenge in carbohydrate synthesis is stereochemical control of glycosidic bond formation. Different glycosylation methods have been developed that are based on the modulation effect of external nucleophiles. This review highlights the development, synthetic application, challenges and outlook of the modulated glycosylation methods.
