Abstract
[GRAPHICS] Phenylalanine-derived B-aryl-N-tosyloxazaborolidinones selectively activate one of two enantiotopic oxygen atoms in prochiral anti dioxane acetals der ived from meso-1,3-diols, leading to enantioselective formation of ring-cle avage products. The reaction is utilized as a key step in asymmetric desymm etrization of meso-1,3-diols.
