Diastereoisomeric pyranoside acetals derived from enantiomerically pure α-hydroxy esters are readily separated by simple column chromatography. The "resolved" chirality center at the anomeric carbon can be used as a control element in synthetic manipulations of the pyranoside ring. 1. Introduction 2. Prior Art - Racemic Dihydropyranosides 3.
