Starting from a vinyl epoxide, a divergent synthesis of four sphingosine isomers is described. The remaining four isomers can easily be synthesized using the same methodol. Although numerous syntheses of sphingosine have been published, this is the first general route leading to all eight isomers in this important compd. class. The synthetic strategy relies on regioselective opening of a vinyl epoxide and a vinylaziridine in the allylic position.
