Literature References

Glycosyl isothiocyanates have been prepared in good yield by heating fully O-acetylated glycosyl bromides with KSCN in the absence of solvent. With acetobromo-ɑ-D-glucose, displacement was accompanied by stereochemical inversion: Synthesis, 1228 (1995).

Reaction with Bis(cyclopentadienyl)­titanium dichloride, A11456 results in 1,2-elimination providing a convenient route to the glycal: J. Org. Chem., 60, 7055 (1995).
