Catalytic diazo decomposition chemistry was explored with novel diazoacetate functionalized carbohydrates. In both glucose and galactose derivatives, aromatic cycloadditions with the benzyl protecting groups proved to be most favorable reactions. Replacing the benzyl groups by methoxy groups in the glucose system led to formation of ‘carbene dimers’.
