A mixed activation system composed of ytterbium(III) triflate and a catalytic boron trifluoride diethyl etherate complex efficiently promotes the glycosylation of various alcohol acceptors using 2-acetamido-3,4,6-tri-O-benzyl-2-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranosyl acetate in dichloromethane at room temperature to afford 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-glucopyranosides in good yields with significant formation of the α-isomers. Notably, stereoselective glycosylations of phenol derivatives as the acceptors afforded aryl 1,2-cis-α-glycosides without the formation of any β-isomers. This highly stereocontrolled 1,2-cis-α-glycosidation was applied to the synthesis of a novel hydroquinone α-glycoside.
