This chapter deals with how we took advantages of unique properties of ionic liquids in glycosylation reactions, such as their tunability, basicity of anion moieties, and nonvolatility. Thus, we developed environmentally benign O - and C -glycosylation methods using glycosyl phosphates, glycosyl fl uorides, methyl glycosides, and 1-hydroxy sugars in several ionic liquids.
