A new type of ribosyl-diazepanone derivative (23), the core ribosyl 7-membered heterocycle of the nucleoside antibiotic liposidomycin B has been synthesized using a chiral synthetic route that could offer accessibility to any of possible stereoisomers of 23. Starting from readily available cis-1,4-butenediol and β-D-ribose, epoxides (4) and (14) were obtained. Regioselective nucleophillic ring opening of these epoxides subsequently to the several reaction steps afforded key intermediates amine (9) and azido acid (19) which were ultimately coupled to furnish amide (20). During hydrogenolysis of azido aldehyde (22) an intramolecular Schiff base formation occurred yielding the desired product (23).
