(Equation presented) Glucosyl-, galactosyl-, and mannosyl iodides efficiently react with strained oxacycloalkane acceptors to afford O-glycosides with high β-selectivity. The mechanism of ring opening was investigated by reacting mannosyl iodides with pure enantiomers of propylene oxide and styrene oxide. Competition experiments between three- and five-membered oxacycloalkanes were also investigated. Finally, β-thiomannosides were synthesized from thiocycloalkane acceptors.
