NbCl5-catalyzed reaction of primary and secondary alcohols with tri-O-acetyl-D-glucal is described. Exclusive formation of α-anomers of eight 2,3-unsaturated glycosides (3a-h) in high yields has been observed. Among eight unsaturated glycosides (3a-h) prepared, two of them (3d,e) are new. A new mechanism of the formation of (3a-h) from tri-O-acetyl-D-glucal and an alcohol assisted by NbCl5 as a catalyst has been suggested.
