A novel method of enantioselective 1, 3-dioxane construction via a hemiacetalization/intramolecular oxy-Michael addition cascade by a chiral phosphoric acid catalyst was developed. The product was successfully transformed into an optically active 1, 3-polyol motif, indicating that the proposed reaction can provide useful chiral building blocks for the de novo synthesis of polyketides.
