6-Nitro-2′-carbonyl-C-glycofuranosides synthesized via Henry reaction from 1-C-allyl 5-aldo-C-glycoside underwent an intramolecular Michael addition to afford nitrocyclohexanol derivatives in good to excellent yield. Reduction of the nitro group followed by intramolecular amination with ketone and aldehyde and amidation with ester produced indoline and oxindole derivatives, respectively, in excellent yield.
