2.5 anti-1,3-Diols and Polyols via SAMP/RAMP Hydrazones

Propella ether (11-oxatricyclo[4.4.3.01,6]tridecane) was conveniently synthesized from 1,3-diol (6-(2-hydroxyethyl)spiro[4.5]decan-6-ol) in 97% yield via carbon skeleton rearrangement.

9.2 1,3-Diols via 1-Oxa-2-silacyclopentanes

The high diastereo- and enantioselectivity in the formation of the (R,R) isomer is accounted for by an anti s′E transition state 18.AB - (2R,3S)-3-Allyloxy-3,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2H-pyran-2-methanol was prepared in high yield from tri-O-acetyl-d-glucal, an easily available and cheap chiral source.
