Abstract

A new method for the synthesis of 2,3-dihydrofurans from readily available starting enones and α-nitro carbonyl compounds has been developed. This protocol can provide a novel and effective methodology for the preparation of 2,3-dihydrofurans in a stereoselective fashion. With 1,4-dien-3-ones, 2,3-dihydrofurans and cyclohexenecarboxylates were produced and high chemoselectivity was observed in different solvents.
