TL;DR: This review provides a personal account of the explorations of a research group in oligosaccharide and glycoconjugate construction that led to novel compounds which are in the final stages of preclinical assessment.
Abstract: This review provides a personal account of the explorations of a research group in oligosaccharide and glycoconjugate construction. The journey began twenty years ago with the study of Diels–Alder reactions of complex dienes. By extending this methodology to aldehydo-type heterodienophile equivalents, access to unnatural glycals was gained (LACDAC reaction). From this point a broad-ranging investigation of the use of glycals in the synthesis of oligosaccharides and other glycoconjugates was begun. Mobilization of glycals both as glycosyl donors and glycosyl acceptors led to the strategy of glycal assembly. Several new glycosylation techniques were developed to provide practical underpinning for this logic of glycal assembly. Glycal-based paradigms have been shown to be nicely adaptable to solid phase supported synthesis. Moreover, glycal assembly—both in solution and on solid phases—has been used to gain relatively concise and efficient entry to a variety of biologically interesting and potentially valuable constructs. Some of these syntheses, particularly in the field of tumor antigens, have led to novel compounds which are in the final stages of preclinical assessment. This review presents an account of the chemical reasoning at the center of the program.
TL;DR: Repeating glycosidic linkages of oligosaccharides can be synthesized by solid-phase methods using glycals attached to a polystyrene copolymer with a silyl ether bond.
Abstract: Repeating glycosidic linkages of oligosaccharides can be synthesized by solid-phase methods. Glycals were attached to a polystyrene copolymer with a silyl ether bond and were activated to function as glycosyl donors with 3,3-dimethyldioxirane. Glycosidation was performed by reactions with a solution-based acceptor (itself a glycal). Excess acceptor and promoter were removed by rinsing after each coupling, and the desired oligosaccharides were then easily obtained from the polymer by the addition of tetra-n-butylammonium fluoride. By this method, glycosidations are stereospecific and interior deletions are avoided.

TL;DR: Photolysis of 0.25 equiv of W(CO)6 in the presence of tertiary amines and highly functionalized terminal alkynyl alcohols catalyzes single-step, high-yield cycloisomerization to endocyclic enol ethers, leading to enantio- and diastereoselective syntheses of each isomer of 6-deoxy-1,2-glycals.
Abstract: Photolysis of 0.25 equiv of W(CO)6 in the presence of tertiary amines (triethylamine or DABCO) and highly functionalized terminal alkynyl alcohols catalyzes single-step, high-yield cycloisomerization to endocyclic enol ethers. This transformation is general for each diastereomeric 3,4-bissilyl ether of 5-hydroxy-1-hexyne, leading to enantio- and diastereoselective syntheses of each isomer of 6-deoxy-1,2-glycals. Stereoselective glycosylations have also been demonstrated for each glycal diastereomer, and have been applied in the preparation of d-digitoxose-β-4-d-digitoxose glycal.
