A stereoselective synthesis of 7-dihydro-triocacarcinose B, a branched octose from the quinocyclines, has been achieved. The biocatalytic resolution of a Baylis−Hillman adduct and a subsequent ring-closing metathesis were used to assemble the molecular framework. Subsequent key steps were a highly stereoselective epoxidation and a regio- and stereoselective opening of the epoxide by allyl alcohol and HClO4 to introduce the C(3)-OH group in protected form. The 7-dihydro-triocacarcinose B could be converted into the corresponding 1,7-anhydrosugar.
