Enzymatic Fluorous Tagging

One of the strengths of fluorous methods is the high degree of chemical compatibility.  Due to the strength of the C-F bond fluorous tags are essentially inert to most chemical conditions.  Anionic, cationic, radical, organometallic, you name it.  Whatever conditions … Continue reading

Fluorous Phosphate Protecting Group

A second post in a row on phosphate chemistry which is a new record for F-Blog.  In this instance, however, we’re not discussing the enrichment of phsphorylated peptides, but the synthesis of phosphorylated carbohydrates.  As discussed in the last post … Continue reading

New Heavy Fluorous Tag for Synthesis

Researchers at the Noguchi Institute in Tokyo, led by Profs. Miura, Inazu, and Mizuno, have been using fluorous methods for the synthesis of peptides and carbohydrates for quite some time.  Most of the time their approach has been to use … Continue reading

Oligosaccharide Catch and Release

The synthesis of oligosaccharides is not easy when compared to to other oligomeric biomolecules such as oligonucleotides and peptides.  There’s a number of reasons for this, but primarily it comes down to one thing: complexity.  For example, DNA is made … Continue reading
