CHAPTER 2

Methodologies in Chemical Syntheses of Carbohydrates

In this chapter, methodologies to access diverse carbohydrates by chemical syntheses are discussed. Works covered on this topic range from de novo preparation of desirable monosaccharide substrates to concerns raised in glycosylation as the most important chemical reaction in carbohydrate chemistry, and eventually to showcasing examples of complexed carbohydrates and their derivatives which have been synthesized with additional strategic route design on top of application of the methodologies introduced. Emphasis has been placed on the control of reactivity and stereoselectivity during glycosylation, which set up the basis for the construction of large carbohydrate scaffolds.
