Supramolecular Control in Carbohydrate Epimerization: Discovery of a New Anion Host-Guest System.
Journal article, 2008
A new anion-carbohydrate recognition system is described. Pyranosides with axial protons in 1-, 3-, and 5-position proved efficient, forming relatively strong complexes between the anion and the B-face of the carbohydrate. This system could furthermore be used in supramol. control in Lattrell-Dax epimerization reactions, leading to either activation or deactivation effects. [on SciFinder(R)]
