2,3:5,6-Di-O-isopropylidene-D-mannose has been converted by five sequential reactions (Wittig reaction, deacetonation, hydrogenation, lactonisation, and isopropylidenation) into 2,3-dideoxy-5,6:7,8-di-O-isopropylidene-D-octonolactone which in a Wasserman reaction gave an α-ketolactone from which KDO could readily be obtained by hydrolysis.
