    Abstract

    Selenoboranes react with terminal α,β- di- and trisubstituted epoxides to produce β-hydroxylenides, (or olefins) in the two first cases and allyl alcohols in the last one. A very high stereodescrimination has been observed for α,β-disubstituted epoxides: the cis epoxide being much more reactive.
