Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) An innovative method for target-selective degradation of oligosaccharides induced by a light-activated hybrid molecule consisting of anthraquinone and lectin has been developed (see scheme). The reaction takes place under neutral conditions, and no additives are required. PNA = peanut agglutinin.
