Synthesis of Optically Active endo, endo Bicyclo[2.2.2]octane-2,5- diol, Bicyclo[2.2.2]octan-2,5-dione and Related Compounds

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Optically active C-2-symmetric (1S,2S,4S,5S)-bicyclo[2.2.2]octane-2,5-diol ((+)-12; 98% ee) and several selectivity protected optically active intermediates useful for synthetic transformations were synthesized via a 1,2-carbonyl transposition route starting from the easily available optically active (1R,4S,6S)-6-hydroxybicyclo[2.2.2]octan-2-one ((-)-2). The synthetic route also allowed the preparation of optically active (1S,4S)-bicyclo[2.2.2]octane-2,5-dione ((+)-14; 98% ee).
