α-Fluoro-β-(p-tolylsulfonylmethyl)-α-trifluoromethyl-γ-lactones (2) show high reactivity for various nucleophiles to afford cyclic hemiketals (3). Reduction of 3 with lithium aluminium hydride brought about reductive ring-opening to give 2-fluoro-3-(p-tolylsulfonylmethyl)-2-(trifluoromethyl)alkane-1,4-diols (4) in a stereoselective manner.
