    Balmond, EI, Coe, DM, Galan, MC & McGarrigle, EM, 2012, ‘α-Selective organocatalytic synthesis of 2-deoxygalactosides’. Angewandte Chemie - International Edition, vol 51., pp. 9152-91555


    Alpha rules: A thiourea acts as an efficient organocatalyst for the glycosylation of protected galactals to form oligosaccharides containing a 2-deoxymonosaccharide moiety. The reaction is highly stereoselective for α-linkages and proceeds by way of a syn-addition mechanism.
