Abstract

Enantioselective synthesis of \alpha-hydroxy aldehydes with an alkene tether was accomplished front L-(+)-tartaric acid, employing stereoselective reduction of a 1,4-diketone with L-selectride as the key step. Synthetic utility of these aldehydes was demonstrated in the synthesis of pine beetle pheromone (+)-exo-brevicomin.
