Abstract[During density functional theory (DFT) studies of glycopyranosyl oxacarbenium ions two unexpected conformational preferences for substituents at O-2 were discovered. One is that substituents at O-2 have a propensity to be equatorial. This leads to a unexpected stability of the 5S1 conformer of D-glucopyranosyl oxacarbenium ions. The second is for the first atom attached to O-2 to adopt a syn conformation. This was shown to be a result of hyperconjugation between a lone pair on O-2 and the LUMO associated with the C-1--O-5 double bond. In order to provide experimental corroboration we have prepared glucopyranosyl donors with a chiral methyl cyclopropylmethyl group at O-2. The results of glycosylation reactions with 4 glycosyl acceptors of these donors will be presented. As well, the conformational preferences of the associated glucopyranosyl oxacarbenium ions as determined by DFT calculations will be presented]>
