This account will describe the results of research on a model study for the total synthesis of oscillatoxin A. During the course of this work, major subunits of the target molecule were assembled and protecting group schemes were devised for use during the total synthesis. In addition, a new method for the selective benzylation of 1,2-diols was developed, and a new and highly efficient method for the synthesis of 3-deoxy-L-pentoses, compounds which are useful for the synthesis of nucleoside analogues, was discovered.
