Abstract

Organocatalytic asymmetric epoxidation of chromenes mediated by iminium salt catalysts under non-aqueous conditions provided ees as high as 99%. Contrastingly, reaction under aqueous conditions can form the corresponding diol products with ees as high as 71%. The process has been used for the synthesis of the East African medicinal plant metabolite (3S,4R)-trans-3,4-dihydroxy-3,4-dihydromollugin.
