Abstract

Both antipodes of a-methyl-a-methoxyarylacetic acid derivatives were prepared from a common chiralpool precursor L-(+)-tartaric acid. The key step involves the addition of Grignard reagents to 1,4-diketones derived from tartaric acid. The utility of this strategy was applied in the formal enantioselective synthesis of pine beetle pheromone (-)-frontalin.
