It is not surprising that Purdies silver(I) oxide catalyst has been used for benzylations. Kuhn used this method in dimethylformamide for the benzylation of 1,2:5,6-di-O-isopropylidene-α-d-glucose with both benzyl chloride and benzyl bromide.[‌52‌] A more recent use of silver(I) oxide catalysis for benzylation uses toluene or dichloromethane as solvent.[‌53‌] Symmetrical diols give almost exclusively monoalkylation, but regioselectivity is low. The general equation is given in Table 2, along with results from selected examples; a typical procedure follows.
