An intramolecular Pauson-Khand reaction of enynes derived from homoallyl and homopropargyl alcohols is described. 2-Furyl substituted homoallyl and homopropargyl alcohols are easily and efficiently resolved through enzymatic resolution in a high ee (93-99%) with a known stereochemistry. Each enantiomerically enriched enyne affords the conformationally most stable diastereomeric cyclopenta[c]pyran ring system. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
