The synthesis of lampteroflavin (the light emitter of the luminous mushroom, Lampteromyces japonicus) is described. Protected riboflavin was stereoselectively glycosylated with ribofuranosyl imidate to give largely the α-product. Chloroethyl group which could be removed under neutral condition contributed to this synthesis. © 1991.
