Gycosylations of the 1-O-acetyl-2,6-anhydro-2-thio sugar 3 with alcohols in the presence of several Lewis acids in CH2Cl2 proceeded smoothly to give the corresponding β-O-glycosides with high stereocontrol in high yields, and the selectivity of the glycosylation was highly independent on Lewis acids.
