Stereoselective synthesis of d-5-homo-4-selenoribose, serving as a versatile intermediate for the synthesis of 4′-selenonucleosides 12a-c, was accomplished using Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation, regioselective cleavage of the α,β-epoxide, and stereoselective reduction of the ketone as the key steps.
