Abstract: A set of new bis-spirofused 1,2,4-trioxanes 4a-d was obtained from the reaction of cyclohexane-1,4-dione with allylic hydroperoxides 2a-d, bearing an additional hydroxy group in the homoallylic position, by diastereoselective photooxygenation of allylic alcohols 1a-d and subsequent BF3-catalyzed peroxyacetalization with the diketone. From the reaction of a monoprotected cyclohexane-1,4-dione 5 with the allylic hydroperoxide 6 derived from the singlet oxygenation of methyl hydroxytiglate, one monospiro compound was obtained, the 1,2,4-trioxane ketone 7, as well as a mixture of the diastereoisomeric syn- and anti bis-1,2,4-trioxanes 8. The structures of bis-1,2,4-trioxanes were examined theoretically by DFT methods and compared with X-ray structural data in order to evaluate the preferential trioxane ring conformational orientation.
Keywords: Bis-spiro compounds; peroxides; singlet oxygen; DFT calculations; X-ray structure determination.
