A highly enantioselective organocatalytic peroxidation of enals enabled an enantioselective route toward the core structure of interesting anticancer natural products including a cyclization cascade of a chiral bis(epoxy)hydroperoxide and should be applicable to the enantioselective synthesis of a broad range of chiral 1,2-dioxolanes and 1,2-dioxanes.
