A conjugated addition of benzylamine to methyl (4R,5S)-4,5-(isopropylidenedioxy)-(2E)-hexenoate (12) followed by lactonization under acidic condition proceeds formally to the total syntheses of L-daunasamine (1) and L-acosamine (2). On the other hand, direct conjugated addition of benzylamine to methyl (4S,5S)-4,5-epoxy-(2E)-hexenoate (4) and the subsequent intramolecular nucleophilic attack by ester carbonyl group against epoxy ring of the substrates leads to the formal total syntheses of D-acosamine (2) and D-ristosamine (3).
