A Highly Stereoselective Synthesis of Tetrahydrofurans

Angewchem
A Highly Stereoselective Synthesis of Tetrahydrofurans: The development of a direct and highly stereoselective synthesis of 2,3,5‐substituted tetrahydrofurans has been accomplished through a combination of batch‐ and microchip‐MS‐experiments. This sequential transformation comprises a Lewis acid-mediated reaction of bis(silyl) dienediolate 1 and a broad range of aldehydes, furnishing products with three new σ-bonds and three stereogenic centers in a one-pot process with typically good yields and excellent stereoselectivity.
