Thionocarbamates on carbohydrate scaffolds—from synthesis to bioactivity

2-Thioxotetrahydro-1,3-O,N-heterocycles are commonly named cyclic thiocarbamates or thionocarbamates. The structural association of five- and six-membered thionocarbamates with diverse carbohydrate scaffolds has shown a promising potential in modern organic synthesis and in the preparation of biomolecules mimics. The principal pathways for their synthesis, the recent and most important developments of their chemical transformations as well as some examples of their biological activities will be considered in the following discussion.
