Shine on, shine on: The designed anthraquinone/boronic acid hybrid 1 selectively caused the degradation of oligosaccharides that have a β-D-galactofuranoside residue, which is a unique component in mycobacterial cell walls. Degradation was achieved using long-wavelength UV radiation in the absence of any additives and under neutral conditions.
