STICS: surface-tethered iterative carbohydrate synthesis

Author affiliations


A new surface-tethered iterative carbohydrate synthesis (STICS) technology is presented in which a surface functionalized ‘stick’ made of chemically stable high surface area porous gold allows one to perform cost efficient and simple synthesis of oligosaccharide chains; at the end of the synthesis, the oligosaccharide can be cleaved off and the stick reused for subsequent syntheses.
