To the point: The synthesis of the title compound was achieved with 24 % overall yield through a sequence that has just seven linear steps (see scheme). Key points are the facial selectivity displayed by an oxocarbenium ion derived from a ribopyranose system and an osmium-catalyzed oxidative cyclization that is compatible with several acid-sensitive groups.
