Structural modifications of levoglucosenone, a chiral bicyclic enone available from cellulose, afford a novel access to branched-chain and amino-sugars: methyl, hydroxymethyl and aminomethyl derivatives at position 2. Assignment of the absolute configuration at the quaternary carbon atom has been deduced from X-ray crystallographic data.
