      Abstract:

      Formal synthesis of (+)- and (−)-cyclophellitol from   d-xylose  has been accomplished through utilization of the   latent plane of  chirality present in the starting   carbohydrate. The synthetic pathway is  suitable for   preparation and biological evaluation of cyclophellitol    analogues in both enantiomeric series.
