Regioselective acylation of glycoconjugates with malonic acid was achieved by using phenyl β-D-glucopyranoside as a model glycoside, malonic acid, and tert-butyl isocyanide in aprotic solvents. Structural elucidation of phenyl 6′-O-malonyl-β-D-glucopyranoside was performed by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy and high-performance liquid chromatography-atmospheric pressure chemical ionization-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-APCI-MS/MS). This one-step reaction opens the way to the preparation of reference substances which are required for the spectroscopic identification of malonylated glycosides in complex natural matrices.
