The electrophilic iodocyclization reaction of (Z)- and (E)-5-n-alkylsubstituted 4-alken-1-ols followed by base-induced hydrodeiodination reaction stereoselectively gave, respectively, (Z)- and (E)-alkylidentetrahydrofurans in high yield. Completely different outcomes were observed with (Z)- and (E)-6,6-dimethylhept-4-en-1-ol: their iodocyclization furnished, respectively, threo- and erythro-2-(1-iodo-2,2-dimetylpropyl)tetrahydrofuran with high stereoselectivity. The threo isomer gave clean formation of 6-tert-butyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran by base-induced ring expansion, while erythro isomer underwent a base-induced ring contraction to 1-cyclopropyl-3,3-dimethylbutan-1-one.

Abstract

The electrophilic iodocyclization reaction of (Z)- and (E)-5-n-alkylsubstituted 4-alken-1-ols followed by base-induced hydrodeiodination reaction stereoselectively gave, respectively, (Z)- and (E)-alkylidentetrahydrofurans in high yield. Completely different outcomes were observed with (Z)- and (E)-6,6-dimethylhept-4-en-1-ol: their iodocyclization furnished, respectively, threo- and erythro-2-(1-iodo-2,2-dimetylpropyl)tetrahydrofuran with high stereoselectivity. The threo isomer gave clean formation of 6-tert-butyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran by base-induced ring expansion, while erythro isomer underwent a base-induced ring contraction to 1-cyclopropyl-3,3-dimethylbutan-1-one. Moreover, (Z)- and (E)-5-cyclopropylpent-4-en-1-ol underwent a 6-endo-iodocyclization to threo- and erythro-2-cyclopropyl-3-iodotetrahydro-2H-pyran, respectively, that under the same basic treatment, gave two isomeric 6-cyclopropyldihydro-2H-pyrans in a stereoselective fashion.
