Abstract

Herein, we portray a synthetic route to a bicyclic lactone containing a bridgehead hydroxy group, a structure that is present in many natural products of biological and medicinal relevance. Ethyl ( E )-3-(dimethylphenylsilyl)-7,8-epoxyoct-2-enoate underwent radical-mediated reductive epoxide opening with concomitant intramolecular cyclization using Cp (2) Ti(III)Cl to give cis -6-(dimethylphenylsilyl)-3-oxabicyclo4.3.0]nonan-4-one, a bicyclic lactone with a bridgehead silyl group serving as a masked hydroxy group. Furthermore, the bridgehead C-Si bond underwent stereoretentive oxidative cleavage to give cis -6-hydroxy-3-oxabicyclo4.3.0]nonan-4-one in high yield under Tamao-Fleming oxidation conditions; this demonstrates the potential utility of this strategy in the synthesis of many natural products bearing similar hydroxylated bridgehead chiral center embedded in a bicyclic lactone framework.
