Starting from easily available (+)-norcamphor and according to an established approach, the 2-benzo[b]furyl hydroperoxide exo-5 was obtained in 58% overall yield. In order to ascertain the impact of the modification on the activity of this chiral oxidant, a study was carried out employing it in the asymmetric epoxidation of an allylic alcohol and α,β- enones.

Keywords: Optically pure alkyl hydroperoxides, asymmetric epoxidation, allylic alcohols, α,β-enones, (+)-norcamphor
