1. The condensation of the anomeric methyl 2,3-di-O-benzyl-D-xylofuranosiduronaldehydes with nitromethane has been studied.

2. It has been shown that the position of the substituent at the glycosidic center has an influence on the steric directivity of this reaction.

3. The structure of the 6-nitro-6-deoxyhexofuranosides synthesized has been confirmed by their conversion into known derivatives of methyl D-glucofuranosides.
