Glycosidation of sugar peracetates (D-gluco, D-galacto) with SnCl(4) and CF(3)CO(2)Ag led to either 1,2-cis-, or 1,2-trans-glycosides, depending primarily on the alcohols used. In particular, 1,2-trans-glycosides, expected from acyl-protected glycosyl donors, were formed in high yields with alcohols sharing specific features...
