Enantiocontrolled Synthesis of (11S,12S,13S)-(9Z,15Z)- and (11R,12S,13S)-(9Z,15Z)-11-Hydroxy-12,13-epoxy Octadecadienoic Acids by Means of the Sharpless Asymmetric Epoxidation of the Unsymmetrical Divinylcarbinol

(11S,12S,13S)-(9Z,15Z)- and (11R,12S,13S)-(9Z,15Z)-11-Hydroxy-12,13-epoxy octadecadienoic acids, self defensive substances against the rice blast disease, were synthesized enantioselectively by employing the Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation reaction of the unsymmetrical divinylcarbinol, as a key step.
