Boron trichloride has been found to promote selective deprotection of 1,2- or 1,3-cis oriented secondary benzyl ethers of per-benzylated C-glycosyl derivatives. The reactivity towards BCl(3) follows the order: C-4>or=C-2>C-6>C-3 for C-glucopyranosyl derivatives and C-3>or=C-4>C-6>C-2 for C-galactopyranosyl derivatives. Preparatively useful selective...

A boron trihalide mediated alkyne-aldehyde coupling reaction leading to stereodefined 1,3,5-triaryl-1,5-dihalo-1,4-pentadienes is described. The study led to the discovery of a direct substitution of hydroxyl groups by stereodefined alkenyl moieties using alkenylboron dihalides. During the investigation, it was also discovered...
