Per- O -silylated galactosyl iodides undergo α-glycosidation with fully functionalized glycolipids producing biologically relevant conjugates.


Adjustments needed to increase efficiency of methodology

The methodology described in this article is very valuable for scientists working with glycosphingolipids. It provided a one-pot syntheses of alpha-linked glycolipids with the possibility of using substrates with unsaturations in the fatty acid side chains. This was a challenge...
