Highly β-selective mannosylations of glycosyl acceptors with an α-mannosyl 6-nitro-2-benzothiazoate donor (1α) were carried out smoothly in the presence of a catalytic amount of tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)boric acid [HB(C6F5)4] to afford the corresponding disaccharides in good to high yields: it was proved that high β-selectivity was entirely dependent on the characteristic properties of a donor (1α) and a catalyst, HB(C6F5)4. Interestingly, it was observed that in situ anomerization from 1β to 1α took place rapidly when β-mannosyl donor (1β) was treated with a catalytic amount of HB(C6F5)4 in CH2Cl2.
