It was more than six years ago almost at the same time as I moved to Tottori University. I won the incentive award of Japanese Society of Carbohydrate Research by “The Control of Chemical Glycosylation Based on Organic Electrochemical Method” which was directed towards nowhere. After moving the current position we have achieved automated solution-phase synthesis of oligosaccharides based on the electrochemical method. My students and co-workers played crucial roles to develop the automated electrochemical synthesizer. We are not satisfied with yield and variety of oligosaccharides; however, we are updating the machine and providing thus-obtained oligosaccharide to our collaborators. This short review introduces our achievements during the course of the study.
