Modern organic synthesis requires easily obtainable chiral building blocks that show high chemical versatility for their application in diverse synthetic processes. The main purpose of this review is to present a survey of the scientific literature on levoglucosenone chemistry to provide an up-to-date on different stereoselective synthetic strategies for the construction of biologically important compounds, chiral inductors or templates for organic synthesis.

Keywords: Levoglucosenone, biomass, cellulose, carbohydrates, green chemistry, tetrodotoxin, bioactive compounds, chiral synthon, asymmetric synthesis, chiral inductors, Diels-Alder.
