A stereoselective synthesis of scyphostatin hydrophilic moiety was accomplished. Substrate- and reagent-controlled dihydroxylation of tri- and monosubstituted alkenes afforded desired diols, respectively. Chemo- and stereoselective allylation of α-(methoxycarbonyl)cyclohexanone provided allylcyclohexanol. Oxidative cleavage of glycol and subsequent β-elimination of siloxycyclohexanone furnished the desired epoxycyclohexenone.
