Abstract

The anionic oxy-Cope rearrangements of acyclic 1,5-dien-3-ols with the 3,4-erythro configuration established by the [2, 3]Wittig rearrangement are shown to provide a useful level of diastereoselection and asymmetric transmission in the context of a formal asymmetric synthesis of an insect pheromone.
