A rapid, simple, and efficient deprotection procedure for the deprotection of benzyl- and/or benzylidene protected carbohydrates is described utilizing a continuous flow hydrogenation reactor. The method tolerates both acid- and base sensitive functional groups. The high efficiency, simple work-up, and short reaction time should make this method appealing to researchers working in the fields of carbohydrate chemistry and total synthesis.
