Abstract

A chemoenzymatic synthesis of 2-bromo-6-hydroxy-3-methoxy-2- cyclohexen-1-one starting from cyclohexane-1,3-dione is reported. Manganese(III) acetate-mediated acetoxylation followed by the enzyme-mediated hydrolysis of \alpha'-acetoxy enone affords hydroxy-enone 5 and acetoxy enone 4 with high enantiomeric excesses in good yields.
