Abstract

The synthesis of the D-xylo- 12, D-lyxo- 13, D-ribo- 14 and D-arabino-furanofurans15 was accomplished from the readily available butyrolactones 4 and 5via a non-classical Wittig cyclisation/hydrogenation sequence; these compounds are analogues of the cytotoxic natural product goniofufurone.
