The one-pot reaction of propiophenone with heteroaromatic, aliphatic, and unsaturated aldehydes in the presence of metal halides furnishes racemic tetrahydro-2H-pyran-2,4-diols in a highly diastereo-selective manner. The mechanism for the stereoselective product formation as well as the surprising formation of a side product was explained on the basis of DFT computations.
