dc.description.abstractThe cinchona alkaloid-catalysed enantioselective formal [4+2] cycloaddition of ethyl 2,3-butadienoate with a range of 1,1,1-trifluoro- and 4,4,4-trifluorobutenones is investigated for the preparation of stereodefined 6- and 4-trifluoromethyl-substituted dihydropyrans. Quinidine proved to be the optimal catalyst, generating the desired products in up to 98 % ee and 81 % yield. Stereo- and chemoselective derivatization of the dihydropyrans through hydrogenation is explored.en
