Abstract

The method employing dimolydbenum tetraacetate for the assignment of the absolute configuration of optically active 1,2-diols is thoroughly revisited and applied to several compounds, some of which were synthesized by asymmetric cis-dihydroxylation. No exceptions were found to the empirical rule relating the sign of the induced CD spectrum and the configuration of the substrate, whatever its structure and sterical requirements. To broaden the scope of the method, its applicability to critical situations commonly encountered with synthetic products is tested. It is demonstrated that the method can be applied on samples with low chemical and optical purity, and that it may lend itself as a means to estimate the ee. The roles of the water content of the sample and of the diol-to-dimolybdenum ratio are investigated.
