Abstract:RECENT ADVANCES IN CHEMISTRY OF AMINO SUGARS: OCCURRENCE, BIOSYNTHESIS, SYNTHESIS AND APPLICATION. Amino sugars are chemical compounds that have a sugar backbone, in which one of the hydroxyl groups is replaced by an amino group. Derivatives of amine-containing sugars, such as N-acetylglucosamine, are also considered amino sugars. The synthetic introduction of amino functionalities in a regio-and stereoselective manner ontosugar scaffolds represents a substantial challenge. Most of the modern methods for the p… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
