Apart from pyranoid carbohydrates, which are the most abundant natural products, there are plenty of secondary metabolites, which contain six membered oxygen heterocyclic ring constituents that are bound in other than O-glycosidic manner. Diversely substituted or condensed pyrans are encountered among terrestrial and marine organism metabolites, which are otherwise classified as antibiotics, growth regulators, hormones, toxins, vitamins, and other biologically active compounds, often desirable in medicine and pharmacy as privileged structures. While their biogenesis may be very different, their structural features determine methodology by which their chemical synthesis can be achieved. In this chapter, the most important approaches to pyran ring construction are presented in form of a critical review and exemplified with preparation of compounds of particular significance for pharmacology and medicine. The survey starts with various modes of pyran-focused cyclizations, with many examples of hetero-Diels-Alder cycloaddition reactions in which configuration of all stereogenic centers is controlled. Another method of pyran synthesis which is of general use and great importance consists of the oxidative ring expansion, for which 2-furylcarbinols are used as substrates. This transformation, known as Achmatowicz rearrangement, was designed as a total synthetic approach to pyranosides, which gained significance when combined with recent achievements in catalytic stereoselection. The selection of methods for pyran preparation was illustrated by spectacular examples of application of syntheses, in which simple and complex natural products, including drug leads and registered new drugs (eribulin, gliflozins), were obtained in a stereo-controlled manner.
