Abstract

Site-selective photoredox reactions with somophiles readily enable branching of the carbon skeleton of unprotected glucosides, allosides, and xylosides regioselectively at C3. These reactions open the possibility of selective C-C bond formation in monosaccharides without multi-step protection-deprotection strategies.
