Several homochiral hydroxylated norbornene derivatives have been synthesized from D-mannitol. Stereocontrolled Diels-Alder cycloadditions and stereospecific hydroxylations are key processes for the creation of the stereogenic centers in the target molecules. These compounds are real or potential precursors in the synthesis of carbocyclic nucleosides and related products. © 1994.
