Streamlined synthesis yields longer sugar chains

By using bigger building blocks, scientists in the UK have shown they can make much longer oligosaccharide sequences than previously possible

The traditional synthetic route to long chain oligosaccharides is drawn out and complicated; they require numerous steps to produce the…
