Abstract

The steric and stereoelectronic dependence of the diastereoselectivity in the photochemical |2+2| cycloaddition of chiral 2(5H)-furanones to alkenes is investigated to prepare eventually cyclobutanic natural products. It is shown that the alkenes approach to different chiral 5-substituted 2(5H)-furanones mainly by the less hindered side. © 1991.
