The expeditious synthesis of a common intermediate of l-1-deoxyallonojirimycin (l-allo-DNJ) and l-1-deoxymannojirimycin (l-manno-DNJ) is reported. This intermediate is obtained in highly diastereo- and enantioselectivity with 38.4% overall yield in six steps involving the unprecedented ring-closing metathesis of a tert-butylsulfinyl allylamine as the key step.
