The chlorination of 1,6--anhydro3,4-dideoxy-β-D-threo-hex-3-enopyranose (2) with SOCl2 and pyridine gives predominantly 1,6-anhydro-2-chloro-β-D-erythro-hex-3-enopyranose (3). The chloride (3) takes place exclusively the suprafacial SN2‘ substitution with a variety of nucleophiles in DMF. "Cerny epoxides" are conveniently synthesized by using the reaction of 3 with PhCH2ONa.
