Non-symmetrical trans-2,3-diaryloxiranes have been regioselectively opened by catalytic hydrogenation over Pd/C, NaBH4/Pd and [Cp2TiCl]/H2O. Although in the catalytic hydrogenation reactions the epoxides were mainly opened at the β-carbon with respect to the substituted aryl ring in all cases, with the [Cp2TiCl]/H2O system the regioselectivity was affected by the electronic properties of the aryl residues, the epoxides being opened on the carbon bearing the most electron-releasing or the least electron-withdrawing group. With the NaBH4/Pd system different regioisomers were obtained depending on the substituents. Starting from enantioenriched epoxides, no loss of optical purity was observed in the alcohols formed.

Abstract

Non-symmetrical trans-2,3-diaryloxiranes have been regioselectively opened by catalytic hydrogenation over Pd/C, NaBH4/Pd and [Cp2TiCl]/H2O. Although in the catalytic hydrogenation reactions the epoxides were mainly opened at the β-carbon with respect to the substituted aryl ring in all cases, with the [Cp2TiCl]/H2O system the regioselectivity was affected by the electronic properties of the aryl residues, the epoxides being opened on the carbon bearing the most electron-releasing or the least electron-withdrawing group. With the NaBH4/Pd system different regioisomers were obtained depending on the substituents. Starting from enantioenriched epoxides, no loss of optical purity was observed in the alcohols formed.
