Rhodium-catalyzed intramolecular reductive aldol-type cyclization was described to give β-hydroxylactones with high diastereoselectivities. This cyclization gave syn- or anti-form β-hydroxylactones selectively by changing the solvent. Furthermore, the synthesis of a chiral necic acid lactone was also described which is a part of structural component of pyrrolizidine alkaloid monocrotaline that is used for the preparation of pulmonary hypertension pathological model in rats.

Keywords: intramolecular reductive aldol cyclization; β-hydroxylactone; rhodium catalyst; necic acid lactone
