Products possessing a levulinyl group were selectively isolated from reaction mixtures using a new resin-capture method and a polymer-supported aminooxy group. Successive treatment with NaOH in MeOH readily liberated purified products from the resins. Applications of this method to oligosaccharide syntheses are described.
