Graphical Abstract:


The reported enantioselective synthesis for the preparation of (+)-(2R,3R)-2-(4- hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-3-hydroxymethyl-1,4-benzodioxane-6-carbaldehyde, precursor for the stereoselective synthesis of bioactive flavanolignans, could not be reproduced. Thus, the target molecule was prepared via the synthesis and separation of diastereomeric O-glucosides. TDDFT-ECD calculations and the 1,4-benzodioxane helicity rule were utilized to determine the absolute configuration. ECD calculations also confirmed that the 1Lb Cotton effect is governed by the helicity of the heteroring, while the higher-energy ECD transitions reflect mainly the orientation of the equatorial C-2 aryl group.

Keywords: 1, 4-benzodioxane, flavanolignans, stereoselective synthesis, absolute configuration, TDDFT-ECD calculation, hydroxymethyl.
