Au(I) in combination with AgOTf enables the unprecedented direct and a-stereoselective catalytic synthesis of deoxyglycosides from glycals. Mechanistic investigations suggest that the reaction proceeds via Au(I)-catalysed hydrofunctionalization of the enol ether glycoside. The room temperature
reaction is high yielding and amenable to a wide range of glycal donors and OH nucleophiles.
