Silylmethylallenyl glycosides, symmetrical and unsymmetrical diene glycosides, were synthesized by C-glycosidation with 1,4-bis(trimethylsilyl)-2-butyne in good yield. The nature of the product is controlled by the choice of Lewis acid, BF3·OEt2, or SnCl4. The efficient construction of unsymmetrical diene glycosides was achieved in one pot on the basis of the order of addition of sugar starting materials.
