β-Stereoselective mannosylations were conducted using a 1,2-anhydromannose donor and mono-ol acceptors in the presence of a glycosyl-acceptor-derived borinic ester. Reactions proceeded smoothly under mild conditions to provide the corresponding β-mannosides with high stereoselectivity in moderate to high yields. In addition, the present glycosylation method was applied successfully to the total synthesis of acremomannolipin A.
