Acetonation of methyl glycosides possessing a cis-diol system in the presence of tin(II) chloride-pyridine complex

Abstract: A tin(II) chloride-pyridine complex appears to be the catalyst with special steric requirements in condensation of sugars with acetone. From the saccharides studied, only the methyl glycosides having cis-diol groupings were effectively acetonated.
