Two-step, Stereoselective Synthesis of Linalyl Oxides by Asymmetric Allylic O-alkylation
Each of the four tetrahydrofuran linalyl oxides was prepared by a Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation of geranyl acetate with AD-mix-α or AD-mix-β, followed by a stereoselective palladium-mediated cyclization using the chiral ligand C3-TunePhos.
