Abstract

Even with only a catalytic amount of chiral bis(dihydrooxazole) 1 as external ligand, the rearrangement of benzyl ethers to alcohols [Eq. (1)] proceeds with high enantioselectivity (over 60 % ee). This reaction represents the first example of an enantioselective [1,2] Wittig rearrangement.
