A pressure-based variable-bed flow reactor built for peptide synthesis and capable of real-time monitoring of resin swelling was adapted for automated glycan assembly. In the context of the solid-phase synthesis of several oligosaccharides, the coupling efficiencies, resin growth patterns, and saccharide solvation during the synthesis were determined. The presented work provides the first estimation of on-resin oligosaccharide solvation and an alternative technique to UV–vis monitoring.
