Reactions of O-peracylated C-(1-bromo-β-D-glucopyranosyl)formamides with thioamides furnished the corresponding glucopyranosylidene-spiro-thiazolin-4-one. While O-debenzoylations under a variety of conditions resulted in decomposition, during O-deacetylations the addition of MeOH to the thiazolinone moiety was observed, and with EtOH and water similar adducts were isolated or detected. The structure and stereochemistry of the new compounds were established by means of NMR and electronic circular dichroism (ECD) data supported by time-dependent density functional theory ECD (TDDFT-ECD) calculations. TDDFT-ECD calculations could efficiently distinguish the proposed epimeric products having different absolute configuration in the spiro heterocyclic ring.
