The O-glycosylation of several unprotected deoxythioglycosides and alcohols using 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-p-benzoquinone (DDQ) under long-wavelength UV irradiation was effectively realized using a single electron transfer (SET) mechanism. In some cases, the use of p-methoxyboronic acid was very effective in temporary protection of the 1,3-diol (C4 and C6 positions) of the unprotected glycosyl donors to increase the yields of the obtained O-glycosides.
