C2016-12 – Binuclear copper complexes for selective glycoside hydrolysis

Explanation of Claimed Invention The invention covers the property of binuclear metal complexes to selectively bind to the different carbohydrates and thereby discriminating among their structure and the glycosidic linkage upon hydrolysis. This property is related to the asymmetry of the binuclear metal complex and the metal ion distance Problem Addressed by Claimed Invention Chiral discrimination is displayed by many enzyme classes, such as glycosidases, lipases, and esterases during bond formation and cleavage. Unlike enzymes, synthetic entities do not show sufficient diastereoselective or even chiral discrimination ability in aqueous solution. Man-made stereoselective catalysts for the discrimination of epimoric glycosides in aqueous solution or the selective hydrolysis of and glycosidic bonds are not known yet.
