Kinetic resolution of 2-furylcarbinols employing 10 mol % of Ti(0iPr)4 in the presence of molecular sieves 3A under the Sharpless oxidation condition generally affords corresponding optically actlve 2-furylcarbinols in a range of 80-98% ee. Application of the optically active 1f to the synthesis of (5R,6S)-6-acetoxy-5-hexadecanolide (8), the major component of the oviposition attractant pheromone of the mosquito Culex pipens fatigans, has also been achieved.
