Enantioselective alkylative double ring-opening of epoxides derived from cyclic allylic ethers: synthesis of enantioenriched unsaturated diols.
A screen of external chiral ligands has led to enantioselective organolithium-induced alkylative double ring-opening of 3,4-epoxytetrahydrofuran 1 with n-BuLi to give 3-methyleneheptane-1,2-diol 3 in 75% yield and 55% ee in the presence of bisoxazoline 10, and in up to 60% ee in the presence of (-)-sparteine 2. Extending the alkylative double ring-opening reaction to epoxides derived from oxabicyclo[n.2.1]alkenes (n = 2.3) results in the formation of cycloalkenediols, which, when carried out ...Expand abstract
