Seven-membered cyclic sugars are known as septanoses and septanosides. Whereas furanose and pyranose structures represent the known naturally available sugars, the seven-membered septanose sugars are confined to be only in the synthetic regime as yet. Synthetic explorations and structural studies contribute immensely to bring out many facets of septanoses in recent years. Innovative synthetic strategies drive advancements in septanose sugars. Cyclization of acyclic precursors, ring expansions, and rearrangements of existing scaffolds are major approaches to synthesize septanosides. Studies in the furanose and pyranose and solution phase provide finer details of hither-to unknown structural features, aiding further the desire to uncover newer possibilities of this unnatural sugar structures. Following a brief historical overview, this chapter presents a succinct compilation of the progress in synthetic and structural studies of this class of sugars. © 2020 Elsevier Inc.
