Acetal-exchange reactions of 2,3-disubstituted gluco- and galacto-pyranoside derivatives with acetone dimethyl acetal and acetophenone dimethyl acetal gave the 6-O-(methoxydimethyl)methyl and the 6-O-(methoxymethylphenyl)methyl derivatives as the kinetic products. Formation of 6-O-(methoxydimethyl)methyl derivatives in transacetalation reactions was also demonstrated where cyclisation of the mixed acetal was impossible.
