The synthesis of [3Z,5S,6R] 2-[5,6-epoxy-undec-3-en-1-y1]-5,6-dihydro-4H- pyran (2) and [3Z,5S,6R] 2-[5,6-epoxy-undec-3-en-1-yl]-3,4-dihydrofuran (3) is outlined. Cyclization reactions of 2 and 3 catalyzed by various Lewis acids which proceed to afford spirocyclic ketals rather than the desired carbocycles are described.
