An efficient catalytic asymmetric synthesis of chiral γ-butenolides was developed based on the hetero-allylic asymmetric alkylation (h-AAA) in combination with ring closing metathesis (RCM). The synthetic potential of the h-AAA-RCM protocol was illustrated with the facile synthesis of (-)-whiskey lactone...

Novel nucleoside analogues of both D and L enantiomeric series were prepared by coupling reaction between a 2',3'-dideoxy-3'-modified furanose moiety and four different nucleobases. Though in all cases anomeric mixtures of nucleosides were obtained, the presence of the sterically bulky...
