Herein we report synthesis of complex heparan sulfate oligosaccharide precursors by automated glycan assembly using disaccharide donor building blocks. Rapid access to a hexasaccharide was achieved through iterative solid phase glycosylations on a photolabile resin using Glyconeer™, an automated oligosaccharide synthesiser, followed by photochemical cleavage and glycan purification using simple flash column chromatography.
