Unexpectedly selective formation and reactions of epoxycyclooctenones under microwave-mediated conditions

Abstract

Topologically mobile difluorinated cyclooctenones undergo rapid, high-yielding, and completely stereoselective epoxidations with methyl-(trifluoromethyl)dioxirane. The epoxides resist conventional hydrolysis but react smoothly in basic media under microwave irradiation to afford unique hemiacetals and hemiaminals in good yield.
