Crystal structure of (5R)-5-[(1S)-1,2-di­hydroxy­eth­yl]-4-meth­oxy-3-phenyl-2,5-di­hydro­furan-2-one

In the title compound, C13H14O5, the furan ring is essentially planar [maximum deviation = 0.031 (3) Å] with a stereogenic center (R) at the sp (3) hybridized C atom. The C atom bearing the dihy-droxy ethyl group is S. The absolute configuration is based on the precursor in the synthesis. The two O-H groups are in an anti conformation with respect to each… CONTINUE READING
