Abstract: Synthesis of 3,4-disubstituted tetrahydrofurans has been achieved via radical cyclization of epoxides using titanocene(III) chloride (Cp₂TiCl) as a transition-metal radical source. The radical initiator (Cp₂TiCl) is generated in situ from commercially available titanocene dichloride (Cp₂TiCl₂) and zinc dust in THF under argon. Formal synthesis of two bioactive lignans, burseran and dehydrocubebin has also been accomplished through the radical technology.
