Author affiliations

Abstract

Starting from a vinylepoxide, a short and practical synthesis of D-erythro-sphingosine is described. The key transformations are a regioselective opening of the vinylepoxide and an E-selective cross-metathesis, affording the target molecule in 5 steps and 51% overall yield.
