Our latest paper has been published online in the RSC journal Org Biomol Chem. The paper describes a new way to make glycosyl chlorides using oxalyl chloride as chlorine source and just a catalytic amount of phosphine oxide. The reaction is very clean and so the product can be further reacted without purification in a subsequent organocatalytic glycosylation.
The paper comprises work by Imlirenla, Eoghan and our UCD colleague Kirill Nikitin. This is Ren’s second paper and first as lead author, so particular congratulations to her. The research was funded by Science Foundation Ireland (mostly under a CDA grant to Eoghan). The paper can be read online (currently with a valid subscription, open access will follow, reprints available, email Eoghan):
