L-fucose from vitamin C with only acetonide protection.
- Addition of human milk oligosaccharides (HMO) to baby foods may protect infants from disease. As many simple HMOs are fucosylated this is likely to increase the demand for L-fucose as a synthetic building block. Any chemical synthesis must be cheap to compete with a biotechnological process. Acetonide is the only protecting group we have used in this new synthesis of L-fucose from vitamin C in 27% overall yield (purification by recrystallization; no chromatography required in the entire sequence).
