Carbohydr Res. 1996 Dec 24;296:215-27.The fully methylated cyclohexyl glycosides of 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-alpha- and beta-D-hexopyranoses having the gluco, manno, and galacto configurations were each subjected to reductive-cleavage conditions using one of three promoters, namely trimethylsilyl trifluoromethanesulfonate, a mixture of trimethylsilyl methanesulfonate and boron trifluoride etherate, or boron trifluoride etherate alone. As expected, the fully methylated 1,2-trans-linked acetamido sugar derivatives were rapidly converted to their respective oxazolinium ions with all three promoters. Read More
