The Darzens condensation of 4-monosubstituted and cis-3,5-dimethyl-cyclohexanones with (-)-8-phenylmenthyl α-chloroacetate proceeded to give mixtures of trans- and cis-glycidic esters with high enolate face selectivity (>95% de). The presence of axial methyl substituents at the 3 and 5 position lead to decrease in enolate face selectivity. The configuration of the major products was determined by NMR, derivation, and/or X-Ray crystallographic analysis.
