A straightforward synthesis of (S)-pregabalin in 28% overall yield starting from d-mannitol acetonide, as a primary source of chirality, is presented. The process is suitable for large-scale synthesis and involves simple and high-yielding chemical transformations as well as low-cost commercially available reagents. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
