Transmetallation of the 5-benzyloxy-4-methylpent-2-en-1-yl(tributyl)- and -(triphenyl)stannanes 1 and 8 using tin(IV) chloride generates an allyltin trichloride that reacts with aldehydes to give (Z)-1,5-anti-6-benzyloxy-5-methylhex-3-en-1-ols 2. The allyltin trichloride believed to be the key intermediate in these reactions has been trapped by phenyllithium to give anti-5-benzyloxy-4-methylpent-1-en-3-yl(triphenyl)stannane 9. Transmetallation of this anti-5-benzyloxy-4-methylpent-1-en-3-yl(triphenyl)stannane 9 generated an allyltin trichloride that reacted with aldehydes to give the (Z)-1,5-syn-6-benzyloxy-5-methylhex-3-en-1-ols 23 and was trapped by phenyllithium to give syn-5-benzyloxy-4-methylpent-1-en-3-yl(triphenyl)stannane 24. Similar stereoselectivity was observed for tin(IV) chloride promoted reactions of this syn-5-benzyloxy-4-methylpent-1-en-3-yl(triphenyl)stannane 24 with aldehydes and with phenyllithium. The allyltin trichlorides generated by transmetallation of 4-hydroxy- and 4-benzyloxy-pent-2-enyl(triphenyl)stannanes 34 and 35 were similarly trapped by phenyllithium to give 4-hydroxy- and 4-benzyloxy-pent-1-en-3-ylstannanes 36 and 37 whose configurations were established by correlation with known compounds. This work confirmed the configurations of the intermediate allyltin trichlorides involved in tin(IV) chloride promoted reactions of 4- and 5-alkoxypent-2-enylstannanes with aldehydes and showed that the high levels of remote stereocontrol were due mainly to kinetically controlled transmetallation. A fuller mechanistic scheme is proposed for the reactions in the 5-benzyloxy-4-methylpent-2-enylstannane series together with relevant 119Sn NMR data.
