Abstract

A preparative-scale synthesis of B-γ,γ- dimethylallyldiisopinocampheylborane starting from prenyl alcohol has been described. This reagent, upon reaction with various aldehydes, provides the corresponding α,α-dimethylhomoallylic alcohols in high enantioselectivities. The application of this reagent has been demonstrated for the synthesis of C1-C6 subunit of epothilone.
