The absolute configuration at two newly formed stereogenic centres (5S, 7S) during the key steps of the total synthesis of naturally occuring goniothalesdiol was established by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis relative to stereocentres (1S, 8R) of the title compound (alternatively named 3,6-anhydro-2-deoxy-6-phenyl-L-ido-1,4-hexonolactone, C12H12O4). The conformation of both 5-membered lactone and furanose fused rings is also discussed.
