Experiments have shown that the anomeric configuration of C-furanosides can be determined by this method. 157 Both anomers of tri-2-benzyl-D-ribofuranosyl fluoride with 2trimethylsilyloxypropene and boron trifluoride gave a very high yield of the acetone compound (60),158 and both anomers of the Oh Oan (60) corresponding rlbofuranosyl acetate with allyltrimethylsilane and zinc bromide afforded the B-ally1 compound (61) under all conditions. Anomeric ratios were high (16:l) in nitromethane, whereas in less polar solvents they were about 2:l.
