Synthesis of 5-Deoxy-β-d-galactofuranosides (5-Deoxy-α-l- arabino-hexofuranosides) Starting from d-Galacturonic Acid Using Photoinduced Electron Transfer Deoxygenation

Developing specic deoxygenation methods for carbohydrates is important as deoxy sugars are useful not only for enzymatic characterization but also for the synthesis of natural products from carbohydrate precursors as chiral templates.1-3 Since its development in 1975, the Barton-McCombie deoxygenation method has been
