A new method for the synthesis of 2,3-dihydrofurans from readily available starting enones and pyridinium salts has been developed. This protocol can provide a novel and effective methodology for the preparation of 2,3-dihydrofurans in a stereoselective fashion. To increase the efficiency of this reaction the one-pot process was also developed, in which the pyridinium salts were generated in situ from corresponding halides.
