Abstract

The abstraction of a diastereotopic hydrogen (1,4) in the silver oxide-bromine catalysed formation of tetrahydrofurans from three acyclic secondary alcohols has been shown to be stereoanalogous to the hydrogen abstraction in lead tetra-acetate generated alkoxy-radicals in the same molecules.
