Abstract This work describes the chemical synthesis of O-aryl-beta-D-glucosides and 1-O-beta-D-glucosyl esters of hydroxycinnamic acids. In particular, O-aryl-beta-D-glucosides were efficiently prepared via a simple diastereoselective glycosylation procedure using phase transfer conditions. Despite the lability of its ester linkage, 1-O-beta-D-caffeoylglucose could also be obtained using a Lewis acid catalyzed glycosylation step and a set of protective groups that can be removed under neutral conditions. Hydroxycinnamic acid O-aryl-beta-D-glucosides were then quantitatively investigated for their affinity for the naturally occurring anthocyanin malvin (pigment). Formation of the pi-stacking molecular complexes (copigmentation) was characterized in terms of binding constants and enthalpy and entropy changes. The glucosyl moiety did not significantly alter these thermodynamic parameters, in line with a binding process solely involving the polyphenolic nuclei.
