Enantioselective synthesis of 2,2,5-tri- and 2,2,5,5-tetrasubstituted tetrahydrofurans via [4 + 2] cycloaddition and ring-opening cross-metathesis.
A chiral vinyl sulfoxide has been developed that undergoes highly diastereoselective Diels-Alder cycloadditions with various substituted furans in excellent yield. The cycloadducts can beExpand

Enantioselective Synthesis of 2,2,5‐Tri‐ and 2,2,5,5,‐Tetrasubstituted Tetrahydrofurans via [4 + 2] Cycloaddition and Ring‐Opening Cross‐Metathesis.
The cycloaddition reaction of the chiral and racemic vinyl sulfoxide with various furan derivatives according to the sequence A) + B) proceeds mostly endo-selectively.
