The unprotected 1,2-anhydro aldopyranoses have been detected for the first time using low-temperature NMR spectroscopy. The formation of these unstable chemical species was successfully achieved through an intramolecular dehydration of saccharides in aqueous media under extremely mild and essentially neutral conditions.
