Abstract

The addition of an allylic organotin compound to an aldehyde in the presence of a Lewis acid affords the erythro homoallylic alcohol. Organotin compounds containing optically active constituents such as menthyl and myrtanyl have been prepared. The myrtanyl compound was used in the preparation of an allylic organotin, cinnamyl trimyrtanyl tin, for future reaction with benzaldehyde. The objective is to obtain both enantio- and diastereoselectivity in the addition reaction.
