A two-directional approach to enantiopure 1,4-difluoro-cyclohexenes: synthesis of difluorinated cyclitol analogues.
Enantiopure 1,4-difluoro-cyclohexenes were prepared from readily available acetonide-protected (3 S,4 S)-hexa-1,5-diene-3,4-diol. In a two-directional mode, a double cross-metathesis reaction using allyltrimethylsilane as the olefinic partner, followed by electrophilic fluorination, afforded diastereomeric acetonide-protected 3,6-difluoro-octa-1,7-diene-4,5-diols. These dienes were found to be suitable substrates for ring-closing metathesis, delivering cyclohexenes featuring fluorine atoms on...Expand abstract
