Abstract An efficient and highly flexible synthesis for chiral gamma- and delta-lactones with high enantiomeric purity is described (>99\% ee and 57-87\% overall yield). The protocol involves alkylation of chiral 1,2-oxiranes with terminally unsaturated Grignard reagents. Subsequent oxidative degradation (OsO(4)-Oxone) of the terminal double bond from chiral alk-1-en-5-ols and alk-1-en-6-ols affords 4- or 5-hydroxy acids and gamma- and delta-lactones after acidic workup. The flexibility and efficiency of the protocol is illustrated by the synthesis of several alkanolides and alkenolides, hydroxy fatty acids and dihydroisocoumarins.
