Abstract

The Diels-Alder reactions of some carbohydrate derivatives, as chiral acrylic esters, with cyclopentadiene proceed highly diastereoselectively to provide the adducts carrying a norbornene carboxylate. By reductive removal of the carbohydrate templates from the adducts, both 2S and 2R-enriched 5-norbornene-2-methanol are obtained.
