Abstract

2-Acyl tetrahydrofuran is a fundamental structure in natural products and pharmaceuticals. We achieved chiral quaternary ammonium hypoiodite salt-catalyzed enantioselective oxidative cycloetherification of δ-hydroxyketone derivatives. The corresponding 2-acyl tetrahydrofurans were obtained in high chemical yield with high enantioselectivity.
