Racemic isobutyl 3,4-anhydro-2,6-dideoxy-α-lyxo-hexopyranoside, 3, was prepared starting from the cycloadduct between 3-buten-2-one and isobutyl vinyl ether, through a sequence involving hydroboration-oxidation, mesylation, anomeric equilibration, elimination and epoxidation. The intermediate isobutyl 2,3,4,6-tetradeoxy-α-3-DL-hexenopyranoside, 10 was not stable under the conditions used for its preparation (t-BuOK in DMSO), being converted in part into the corresponding 2-hexenopyranoside. Under the same conditions the -anomer of 10 was stable. Complete hydrolysis of DL-3 with aqueous NaOH, or with microsomial epoxide hydrolase (MEH) gave exclusively the xylo-diol (isobutyl DL-α-boivinopyranoside 5). When the hydrolysis with MEH was stopped near 50% conversion and the product diol was separated from the unchanged epoxide, both were optically active, the former having the L and the latter the D configuration. An ee of at least 96% was found for both the diol and the epoxide by the use of a chiral shift reagent.
