Abstract

Metallated haloalkenes were used to open epoxides in moderate to good yield. The homoallylic alcohols obtained underwent Swern oxidation to afford three γ,γ-difluorinated β,γ-enones, which reacted with either vinyllithium, 2-lithio-2H-dihydropyran or another metallated haloalkene to afford substituted trans-1,2-divinylcyclohexanols of different degrees of stability. These intermediates underwent neutral thermal oxy-Cope rearrangements when heated in xylene in Ace® tubes. The first-formed enols ketonised without loss of HF to afford a range of cyclodecenones in moderate to good yield; X-ray crystallography was used extensively for product characterisation. All substrates rearranged more rapidly than a cis/trans mixture of 1,2-divinylcyclohexanols.
