Abstract:Density functional calculations
(Becke3LYP/6-31G(d)) on the (3 + 2) transition structures of
tetroxide mediated dihydroxylations of chiral allylic ethers show that
the stereoselectivity is controlled by the “inside
alkoxy effect” (Stork/Houk-Jäger model). In the special
case of Z-disubstituted alkenes, 1,3-allylic strain
model) controls the stereoselectivity.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
