A conceptually new approach to regiospecific deprotonation at the α-position of β'-hydroxyethyl bis-allylic ethers is shown on the basis of the dianion repulsion with the β'-alkoxy anion, of which the [2,3]Wittig rearrangement product can be transformed to the A-rings of singly dehydroxylated 1(or 3),25-dihydroxy-19-nor-vitamin D3 analogues to stimulate apoptosis or differentiation of HL-60 cancer cell.
