Under Lewis acid activation, the new α-hydroxy-spiro epoxide scaffold 1a underwent an original tandem Payne/Meinwald rearrangement affording the cyclopentyl hydroxymethylketone 6 in a stereospecific manner, while a Meinwald-type epoxide rearrangement occurred when the derived α-trimethylsilyloxy-spiro epoxide 2a was treated with MABR, yielding stereoselectively the cyclohexane carbaldehyde 9.
