Synthesis of δ-tetrahydrofurylalkanols and homologs of tetrahydropyran

  • I. F. Bel'skii

A method for convertingγ-tetrahydrofurylalkanols intoδ-tetrahydrofurylalkanols has been developed. The latter are converted on Pt/C, as a result of isomerization of the tetrahydrofuran ring, intramolecular cyclization, and hydrogenation, into homologs of tetrahydropyran or dihydropyran with a yield of 80%.
