Photooxygenation of cyclohexa-1,4-diene afforded anti-2,3-dioxabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-7-en-5-yl hydroperoxide. The hydroperoxy endoperoxide was reduced with dimethylsulfide-titanium tetraisopropoxide to produce ()-anti-2,3-dioxabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-7-en-5-ol. The highly efficient enantioselective resolution of the racemic (+/-)-anti-2,3-dioxabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-7-en-5-ol was accomplished with Candida cylindracea lipase (CCL) to produce the enantiomerically enriched alcohol and the corresponding acetate: The cleavage of the peroxide linkage by thiourea followed by the oxidation of the double bond with OsO4 resulted in the formation of (-)-proto-quercitol and (+)-proto-quercitol, respectively.
