Abstract

Readily available arabinose-derived 4-uloses, containing a tunable butane-2,3-diacetal as the steric sensor, displayed increasing enantioselectivity (up to 93% ee) with the size of the acetal alkyl group in catalytic asymmetric epoxidation of trans-disubstituted and trisubstituted alkenes.
