Abstract
The transformation of epoxides into allylic alcohols by use of iodotrimethylsilane and 1,5-diazabicyclo- [5.4.0]undec-5-ene is described. The scope and limitations of this reaction are examined. This method is complementary to the method of Sharpless in the case of trisubstituted epoxides and proceeds under milder reaction conditions than the method employing lithium dialkylamides.
