3-α,β-Vinyl-5-carbomethoxy-2-oxabicyclo[3.3.0]octane derivatives (7a,b) were synthesized through heterocyclization of alcohols trans- and cis-2-[(E)-buten-2-yl-1-]-2-carbomethoxycyclopentanols (5a,b) employing a palladium acetate / cupric acetate catalytic system. This cyclization process was diastereoselective, favoring the formation of 3β-vinyl (exo) diastereomer (7b). In addition, the employ of adequate solvent system, i.e. isopropanol/water, could prevent a ketalization side reaction verified in methanol/water.
