Synthesis of β-C-d-galactosyl d- and l-alanines is carried out via a highly stereoselective Grignard reaction of glycosyl iodides, Sharpless dihydroxylation and SN2 displacement of the corresponding mesylate or tosylate. Alternatively, attempted triflation of the intermediate alcohols triggers a stereoselective debenzylative cyclization leading to interesting bicyclic trans-fused compounds.
