Abstract

The photochemical reaction of 1-(2-furyl)-1-phnylethanol with benzaldehyde gave a mixture of regioisomeric products. The adduct obtained on the more hindered side of the molecule was obtained with complete diastereoselectivity. The same substrate with benzophenone gave only one product with a diastereoisomeric excess of 48%. The reaction of 2-(2-furyl)-3,3-dimethylbutan-2-ol with bezaldehyde and benzophenone gave the corresponding adducts on the more hindered side of the molecule with diastereoisomeric excess of 42 and 71%, respectiviely. These results, and also thos obtained using 2-furylphenylmethanol with benzophenone and acetone (complete diastereoselectivity and absence of diastereoselectivity, respectively), were explained assuming the attack of the excited carbonyl compound on the same side as the hydroxy group, through the formation of a hydrogen bond or of a complex. This type of attack gave the biradical intermediate in preferential conformations. The relative energies of these conformers account for the observed diastereoselectivity.
