X-Ray crystallographic analysis of an enantiopure 1-thio-α-D-glucopyranoside S-oxide clearly supports the role of the exo-anomeric effect in determining the highly stereoselective oxidation of α- thioglycosides to (RS) sulfoxides. Ab-initio and DFT calculations point out the relevance of the anomeric effect, due to the presence of sulfur at position 1, in determining some structural characteristics of aldohexosyl sulfoxides.

Keywords: anomeric effect, stereoselective oxidation, 1-thioglycosides
