Abstract

Stereoselective isomerisation of the pair of epimers rel-(2R,4S,5S)- and rel-(2S,4S,5S)-4-(4-isopropoxy-5,7-dimethoxynaphthalene-2-yl)-2,5-dimethyl dioxolane 12 with an excess of a mixture of titanium tetrachloride and titanium tetraisopropoxide afforded the two products rel-(1R,3S,4S)-3,4-dihydro-4-hydroxy-6-isopropoxy-7,9-dimethoxy-1,3-dimethylnaphtho[1,2-c]pyran 13, and the C-1 epimer 15. Isomerisation of rel-(2S,4R,5S)-4-(8-bromo-4-isopropoxy-5,7-dimethoxynaphthalen-2-yl)-2,5-dimethyl dioxolane 36 with an excess of titanium tetrachloride alone afforded rel-(1S,3S,4R)3,4-dihydro-4-hydroxy-6-isopropoxy-7,9-dimethoxy-1,3-dimethylnaphtho[1,2-c]pyran 38 and its 5-bromo derivative 39, the latter being formed through bromine migration on the aromatic nucleus.
