Abstract: Alternative route is developed to the synthesis of nonparticipating sugar 1-thiocya-nates, including cleavage of the oxirane cycle of 1,2-anhydrosugars by means of ammonium thiocyanate followed by substitution at C-2 with a nonparticipating (O-benzyl, O-methyl, or O-trichloroacetyl) group.
