A convenient and practical approach for the total synthesis of Xestoaminol C has been accomplished
with 16.43% overall yield from commercially available D-glucose. The synthesis involves SN2 type centre inversion
with azido group, Staudinger reaction, Wittig olefination and Pearlman’s catalytic hydrogenation.
Keywords: Staudinger reaction, Wittig olefination, oxidative cleavage, hydrogenation, D-glucose.
