Transformation of cyclohexene to enantiopure cyclitols mediated by sequential oxyselenenylation with (S,S)-hydrobenzoin: synthesis of D-chiro-inositol and muco-quercitol

Abstract

Oxyselenenylation of cyclohexene with (S,S)-hydrobenzoin and subsequent oxidation-elimination allows isolation of an allylic ether in which further phenylselenenylation is completely regioselective, thus allowing entry to the cyclitols D-chiro-inositol and muco-quercitol.
