1,4-Addition reaction of higher order cyanocuprates such as Ph2Cu(CN)Li2 and [Et3SiO(CH2)3C(=CH2)]2Cu(CN)Li2 (3) to six or eight-membered cyclic 2-hydroxymethyl enones proceeded efficiently by successive treatment with trimethylaluminum and cuprate reagents. A side chain for C-ring of 19-hydroxypaclitaxel (1) was introduced in high yields on treating highly functionalized eight-membered cyclic hydroxymethyl enone (2c) with trimethylaluminum and cuprate (3).
