Carbohydrates are the third largest group of biomolecules on Earth. Their structural diversity and wide array of biological activities has made them interesting candidates for the development of new drugs. This project proposes the multistep synthesis of a key glucuronic acid-derived building block that will be used in the automated synthesis of biorelevant glucuronoxylan fragments.
