This report describes a number of new synthetic approaches toward methyl-substituted mono- and diepoxy alcohols that serve as substrates for endo-selective epoxide-opening cascades. The key transformations involve the manipulation of alkynes. Highlighted are the directed methylmetalation of bishomopropargylic alcohols, the bromoallylation of alkynes, and Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling between an alkenyl boronate ester and allylic bromides.
