Neighboring iodo-, alkoxy-, acetoxy- and silyl groups impart useful levels of diastereoselection in the Lewis acid-mediated allylation of monoperoxyacetals. Although monoperoxyacetals are found to be considerably less reactive than corresponding nonperoxidic acetals, similar stereochemical trends are observed in the two series.
