A straightforward method utilizing a bismuth(V) compound was developed for the activation of thiopropylglycosides for coupling to various acceptors; good to excellent yields were obtained without applying additional additives/co-promoters. The method does not require low temperatures, is applicable to a wide variety of carbohydrates, and tolerates different functional groups including alkenes.
