Abstract

An asymmetric 5-endo chloroetherification of homoallylic alcohols is successfully developed that employs an easily available quaternary ammonium salt derived from cinchonine as a conventional organocatalyst. This approach provides ready access to β-chlorotetrahydrofurans in high enantioselectivities.
