C-Glycosides are metabolically stable mimics of natural O-glycosides and are expected to be useful tools for investigation of the biological functions of glycans. Here, we describe the synthesis of a series of aryl and vinyl C-glycosides by stereoinvertive sp3-sp2 cross-coupling reactions of 2-deoxyglycosyl boronic acid derivatives with aryl or vinyl halide, mediated by a photoredox/nickel dual catalytic system. Hydrogenation of the vinyl C-glycosides afforded C-linked 2′-deoxydisaccharide analogues.
