      Abstract:

      In this paper, we have demonstrated that Red-Al is an efficient   chelation-controlled reducing reagent for acyclic acetal (i.e.,   MOM, MEM, SEM, and BOM) protected alpha-hydroxy ketones.   Typically, diastereomeric ratios (dr) ranged from 5 to 20:1 for   the 1,2-anti-diols in good to excellent yields.
