Acyclic 2:3,5:6- and 3:4,5:6-di-O-isopropylidene-D-glucoses have been converted by four reactions involving a Wittig chain homologation, a catalytic hydrogenation, an acid hydrolysis and an acetonation into 2,3-dideoxy-5:6,7:8-di-O-isopropylidene-D-gluco-octono-1,4-lactone which underwent a Wasserman reaction and than a hydrolysis to yield 3-deoxy-D-gluco-oct-2-ulosonic acid, isolated as its ammonium salt 2.
