Abstract: (2S, 3s) and (2S,3R)-tetrahydro-3-hydroxy-5-oxo-2,3-furandicarboxylic acids (Garcinia and Hibiscus acids) have been isolated form plant sources in large amounts. Several attempts were made for the reduction of carboxyiate functional groups, often selectively, using various borane reagents namely BH3THF, BH3SMe2. BH3/trimethyl borate,NaBH4/12 etc. Selective reduction of ester group geminal to hydroxyl group in methyl (2S, 3s)- tetrahydro-3-hydroxy- 5-0x0-2,3-furandicarboxylate, using borane dimehtyl sulphide and catalytic amount of sodium borohydride resulted in (25 3R)-terahydro-3-hydroxy-3-(hydroxymethyl)- 5-0x0-2-furancarboxylate. a versatile ch~ron. Subsequently the diol obtained was converted to analogue of (+)- avenaciolide ((3aR. 6aS)-3a-hydroxytetrahydrofuro [3, 4-blfuran-2.6-dione], a biologically significant bislactone skeleton using ptoluene sulphonic acid. Attempts were made to convert (2S, 3R)-terahydro-3-hydroxy-3- (hydroxymethy1)-5-0x0-2-furancarboxylate to analogues of CIS-whisky and cognac lactones. Interestingly much selectivity was not observed in the case of (2S, 3R)- tetrahydro-3-hydroxy-5-0x0-2, 3-furandicarboxylic acid when reduced using borane dimehtylsulphide and catalytic amount of sodium borohydride. The observed difference in reactivity of the said reagent towards methyl (2S, 3s) and (2S, 3R)- etrahydro-3-hydroxy-5-0x0-2.3-furandicaoate have been analysed mechanistically. Starting with Garcinia acid functionalized chiral butenolides, structural motifs useful for the synthesis of a variety of biologically interesting molecules bearing 2(5H) furanone subunits, have been prepared. The trialkyl (IS, 25) and (IS, 2R)- 1. 2-dihydroxy-I, 2, 3-propanetricarboxylates obtained from the title acids have been effectively employed as chiral ligands in Sharpless asymmetric epoxidation and sulphoxidation reactions.
