Addition of RMgCl (R = n-Bu, Ph) to pinacol esters of 6-tosyloxy-1-alkenyl boronic acids at -78 °C gave the borates, which upon warming to room temperature underwent migration of R on boron to C(1) carbon and concomitant ring construction C-C bond formation between C(2) and C(6), eventually producing cyclopentyl alkyl (or aryl) carbinols after oxidative workup of the borane intermediates with 35% H2O2. Eight examples are presented and the reaction was applied to construction of a cyclohexyl carbinol.
