The olefination of an enzymatically derived γ-peroxy-α,β-unsaturated aldehyde (1) allows the synthesis of optically active diene hydroperoxides in high enantiomeric excess. The application of this method to the synthesis of 13(S)-hydroperoxy-9(Z), 11(E)-octadecadienoic acid methyl ester is presented.
