We investigated the ketopyranosylation of 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzyl-1-C-methyl-d-hexopyranoses with the benzylated d-aldohexopyranoses in order to produce novel non-reducing disaccharides as trehalose mimics. It was found that 5 mol % of bismuth(III) triflate or bis(trifluoromethane)sulfonimide efficiently catalyzed the ketopyranosylation that produced various non-reducing disaccharides.
