The selective synthesis of sugars containing vinyl ester- and vinyl ether-type side chains was developed by means of esterification and Wittig olefination procedures. The studies were focused on the anomeric position of D-xylose and on the primary carbon positions of D-glucose and sucrose. Microwave heating was used in both cases, and the results obtained show the usefulness of microwave irradiation for the development of cleaner technologies in carbohydrate chemistry.
