The reaction of 4,5-epoxy-4-halo-6-methoxy-2-methyltetrahydropyran-3-ones (4b and 5b) in acidic media was examined and the following results were found: The reaction of 4b or 5b with 1% sulfuric acid afforded a mixture of 3,5-dihydroxy-4H-pyran-4-one (1b) and 5-halo-3-hydroxy-4H-pyran-4-one (2b or 3b), but the use of concentrated acid formed the corresponding 5-halo-4H-pyran-4-one (2b or 3b) only. The reaction was applicable for a general method for synthesizing 3,5-disubstituted 4H-pyran-4-ones (1, 2, and 3).
