    Abstract

    From biomass to fine chemicals: A highly regioselective reaction sequence (see scheme) combining a metal-mediated allylation and tandem hydroformylation-cyclisation for converting unprotected monosaccharides into multifuntionalised lactol structures is presented. The reaction sequence is performed in aqueous media without the need for any protective groups.
