Stereoselective synthesis of all-carbon quaternary stereocenters by Barbier-type allylation in aqueous media is described. Sugar-derived aldehydes, 2,3-O-isopropylidene-D-glyceraldehyde and 2,4-O-benzylidene-D-threose, were reacted with geranyl chloride in the presence of zinc powder to provide γ-adducts bearing quaternary stereocenters with good stereoselectivity.
