Synthesis of Chiral Tetrahydrofurans via Catalytic Asymmetric [3 + 2] Cycloaddition of Heterosubstituted Alkenes with Oxiranes


An efficient diastereo- and enantioselective [3 + 2] cycloaddition of heterosubstituted alkenes with oxiranes via selective C–C bond cleavage of epoxides has been developed. The reaction was catalyzed by a chiral <i>N</i>,<i>N</i>′-dioxide/Ni­(II) catalyst, and a variety of chiral highly substituted tetrahydrofurans were obtained in up to 99% yield, 92/8 dr, and 99% <i>ee</i>
