Özet

The chemoenzymatic synthesis of both of the enantiomers of pharmacologically interesting compounds such as 4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-4-oxobenzofuran-5-yl acetate (2a), 4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-4-oxo-6,6-dimethylbenzofuran-5-yl acetate (2b), and their hydroxy derivatives 3a, 3b, 1-benzyl4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-4-oxo-1(H)-indol-5-yl acetate (5), starting from 6,7-dihydrobenzofuran-4(5H)-one (la), 6,7-dihydro-6,6-dimethylbenzofuran4(5H)-one (7b), and 1-benzyl-6,7-dihydro-1 H-indol-4(5H)-one (4) are reported. Manganese(III) acetate-mediated acetoxylation followed by the enzyme-mediated kinetic resolution of alpha'-acetoxy enone provides acetoxy and hydroxy derivatives in good yields and high enantiomeric excesses.
