Chemistry and Pharmacology
Electrochemistry of 2-Trichloromethyl-tetrahydrofurans4-Alkoxy-2-trichloromethyl-4-methyl-tetrahydrofurans (2) were prepared by anodic oxidation of 1,1,1-trichloro-4-methyl-pent-4-en-2-ol (1) in presence of bromide ions and bases. Electroreductions of these compounds in LiCl/Methanol lead to 2-dichloromethyl-tetrahydrofurans (6). Under acidic conditions an olefin (10) was formed as main product.
