Abstract

(-)-Carvone (3) has been efficiently transformed into (-)-3β-hydroxycarvone (1), which is expected to be a useful synthon or chiral template in the synthesis of natural molecules. This short and efficient synthesis of compound 1 involves regioselective and stereoselective α-hydroxylation of carvone via the trimethylsilyl-dienyl-ether derivative.
Keywords: Carvone; 3β-hydroxycarvone; silyl enol ether; stereoselective synthesis Carvone; 3β-hydroxycarvone; silyl enol ether; stereoselective synthesis
