Abstract: The first enantioselective syntheses of sulfur flavan-3-ol analogues 18 have been accomplished, whereby the oxygen atom of the pyran ring has been replaced by a sulfur atom. The key steps were: (a) Pd(0) catalyzed introduction of –S t-butyl group, (b) Sharpless enantioselective dihydroxylation of the alkene, (c) acid catalyzed ring closure to produce the thiopyran ring, and (d) removal of benzyl groups using N,N-dimethylaniline and AlCl3. The compounds were isolated in high chemical and optical purity.
Keywords: flavan-3-ols; 5,7-dideoxythiocatechin; 5,7-dideoxythioepicatechin; thiocatechin; thioepicatechin; asymmetric dihydroxylation
