Oligosaccharide Synthesis Based on Combinatorial Chemistry and Labo Automation

  • Hiroshi Tanaka
  • Takashi Takahashi


Combinatorial chemistry is an effective method not only for the rapid assembly of small molecule libraries but also for the optimization of reaction conditions. Labo automation permits laborious and routine manipulations to be minimized. In this report, we describe the application of combinatorial chemistry and labo automation to the synthesis of oligosaccharide libraries.
