A perchioric acid solution in 1,4-dioxane and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid was found to be practical catalysts for the stereoselective glycosylation of 1-O-acetyiglycosides. Either the α- or β-anomer of the disaccharide, methyl 2,3,4-tri-O-benzyl-6-O-(2,3,5-tri-O-benzyl-D-ribofuranosyl)-α-D-glucopyranoside, was synthesized with complete stereoselectivities simply by changing the solvent. Epimerization of the kinetic product can effectively be suppressed in ether by the excess use of the polyoxygenated substrates.
