The Schmidt glycosylation is a Lewis acid-catalyzed glycosylation using glycosyl trichloroacetimidate as the donor. Presently, it is one of the most popular methods for glycosylation, second only to the glycosylation with a thioglycoside donor. The popularity of this reaction in carbohydrate transformations may be ascribed to the mildly acidic coupling conditions and the opportunities to alter α/β selectivity via different glycosyl trichloroacetimidate donors and/or the coupling reagents. Various mild acids compatible with this glycosylation reaction have been presented. In addition, the general 1,2-trans selectivity of glycosylation also applicable to this reaction. This reaction is useful to study the carbohydrate transformation.
