Enantiomerically pure syn- and anti-2-silyloxy-1-oxiranyl-4-pentenes were prepared by using Jacobsen's hydrolytic kinetic resolution (HKR) method. A resolved epoxypentenol generated in this fashion was used in the total synthesis of (5S,7R)-kurzilactone by a pathway employing epoxide ring-opening and RCM reactions in key steps.
