Abstract

The Katsuki-Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation of linear and cyclic alkenylethylene glycols has led to a conclusion that the origin of the inverted stereoselection is due to the simultaneous coordination between both hydroxy groups of the glycol substrates and both titanium atoms in the Ti 2(tartrate)2 complex.
