Abstract

The first example of the enantioselective ring opening of 1,2-epoxides by a ketone enolate is described. Using (R,R)-(salen)Cr(III)X (X=Cl, OTf) complexes 9 and 10 as the chiral Lewis acid (LA), the addition of the lithium enolate of acetophenone, 1, to cyclohexene oxide, 2, and cyclopentene oxide, 3, gave the corresponding gamma-hydroxy ketones (gamma-HKs) 4 and 5 in low to moderate yields and in up to 62-84% ee.
