Abstract

A short synthesis of the title compound, 16, from d-ribonolactone is described. Two alternative approaches differing in the timing of the CC double bond creation are used to prepare some chiral derivatives of 16. (-)-Ranunculin, a glycoside present in Ranunculaceae, has been synthesized for the first time. © 1982.
