C-Linked carbohydrate structure, in which the cleavable O-glycosidic linkage is replaced by a carbon unit, is a useful tool for functional analyses of glycoconjugates. We describe a synthetic method for α-CH 2 -linked disaccharide structures, such as Glc(1,6)-Glc, by stereoselective radical-coupling C-glycosylation between a conformationally constrained and stable C1-sp 3 hybridized xanthate donor and a carefully designed acceptor.
