Abstract: Venturello's phosphotungstate complex and titanium(IV) isopropoxide [Ti(O-i-Pr)(4)] were successfully used as catalysts for the epoxidation-alcoholysis of glycals using hydrogen peroxide [H2O2] Reaction substrates included a range of variously protected glycals and different alcohols were used as solvents. Ti(O-i-Pr)(4) was only effective in methanol as solvent, but gave methyl glycosides in high yields and high selectivities. The Venturello complex proved to be a very versatile and efficient catalyst. Apart from epoxidation-alcoholysis in alcoholic solvents it also showed activity in biphasic conditions to allow for glycosylation of long-chain alcohols and was very effective in the stereoselective dihydroxylation of benzylated glucal.
