Bromination of glycals with tribromides formed in situ from bromine and different bromide salts in dichloromethane (DCM) or acetonitrile (AN) was found to give predominantly the products of anti addition of bromine from the C-6 side in high yields. The same selectivity, which was much higher compared to bromination with bromine alone, was achieved in bromination of these substrates by anodic generation of bromine from the same salts.
