For five carbohydrate substrates [methyl 4, 6-0-(phenylmethylene)-l-thio-a-D-glucopyranoside la, l-cyano-l-deoxy-4, 6-0-(phenylmethylene)-a-D-galactopyranose 2a, methyl a-D-xylopyranoside 3a, methyl p-D-arabinopyranoside 4a, and methyl 5-0-(ferr-butyldiphenylsUyl)-a-D-ribofuranoside 5a], selective mono-triflation was achieved where the reacting hydroxyl is cis and vicinal to a heteroatom.
