Go with the flow: The indirect cation-flow method based on the generation of highly reactive organic cations from their precursors using electrochemically generated [ArS(ArSSAr)]+ was developed in flow microreactor systems (see scheme; Bn=benzyl, M=micromixer, R=microtube reactor). The method was applied to evaluate glycosyl cations such as A or their equivalents and glycosylation reactions.
