Polysaccharides comprise an extremely important class of biopoly-
mers that play critical roles in a wide range of biological processes,
but the synthesis of these compounds is challenging because of
their complex structures. We have developed a chemoenzymatic
method for regioselective deprotection of monosaccharide sub-
