Abstract

The stereospecific intramolecular alkylation of a hydroperoxyacetal provides the basis for the first asymmetric synthesis of the dioxane propionate core of the peroxyplakorates. Chemoselective hydrometallation of an alkyne in the presence of a peroxide is used to introduce a synthon for the polyunsaturated side chains of the peroxyplakorates. The route suggests a general solution for the 1,2-dioxane unit in many peroxide natural products.
