In the course of synthetic studies of polyether antibiotics, we tried to develop a new synthetic method of substituted tetrahydrofuran and tetrahydropyran rings. When p-methoxystyrene derivatives having a hydroxy group at a suitable position was treated with DDQ, an oxidative cyclization of E-olefins, not Z-olefins, occurred yielding substituted tetrahydrofurans and tetrahydropyrans, though in low yields.
