Abstract

The unique ability of sugar derivatives to undergo bromination at ring positions by a radical mechanism is surveyed more than three decades after the discovery of the reaction. The range of substrates as well as their transformations have been enormously extended, and many of the ensuing products have proven valuable tools for chemical glycobiology.
