Abstract: Me 2,4-di-O-acetyl-3-O-benzyl-β-D-xylopyranoside (I), from which the title glycoside can be obtained in a virtually quant. yield, was prepd. via independent routes. In the 1st procedure, 3-O-benzyl-D-xylose was acetylated with Ac2O in pyridine under controlled conditions to give 85% of cryst. 1,2,4-tri-O-acetyl-3-O-benzyl-α,β-D-xylopyranose (II). Treatment of II with HBr in CH2Cl2 gave the corresponding glycosyl halide and I was obtained by condensation of the halide with MeOH in the presence of Hg(CN)2. The alternative procedure for the prepn. of I comprises opening of the anhydro ring in Me 2,3-anhydro-β-D-ribopyranoside with benzyl alcoholate anion in PhCH2OH and conventional acetylation of the formed Me 3-O-benzyl-β-D-xylopyranoside.
