Glycosyl thioimidates as versatile building blocks for organic synthesisChemistry of Heterocyclic Compounds (2012)
This review discusses the synthesis and application of glycosyl thioimidates in chemical glycosylation and oligosaccharide assembly. Although glycosyl thioimidates include a broad range of compounds, the discussion herein centers on S-benzothiazolyl (SBaz), S-benzoxazolyl (SBox), S-thiazolinyl (STaz), and S-benzimidazolyl (SBiz) glycosides. These heterocyclic moieties have recently emerged as excellent anomeric leaving groups that express unique characteristics for highly diastereoselective glycosylation and help to provide a streamlined access to oligosaccharides.
