t-Butyldimethylsiloxy group of ethyl 4-t-butyldimethylsiloxy-2-trichloromethyl-1,3-dioxan-4-acetates, easily prepared from 2-trichloromethyl-1,3-dioxan-4-ones, was stereoselectively reduced with triethylsilane by using titanium tetrachloride s a promoter to afford ethyl cis-2-trichloromethyl-1,3-dioxan-4-acetaes.
