Abstract :

Frustration leads to overreaction: When diametrically opposed regioselective debenzylation is frustrated, an unexpected double debenzylation reaction affords original tetrafunctionalized cyclodextrins in a controlled and efficient manner. A rationale of the reaction is proposed based on a kinetic study.
