Abstract

A fullerene derivative was found to be capable of photodegrading oligosaccharides under irradiation with not only UV but also visible light. Furthermore, target-selective photodegradation of oligosaccharides (β-d-galactofuranosides) was achieved by a designed and synthesized fullerene-boronic acid hybrid upon irradiation with visible light in the absence of any additives under neutral conditions.
