Chiral phosphine oxide as a Lewis base could effectively catalyze the enantioselective ring opening of 3-substituted oxetanes with silicon tetrachloride in the presence of N,N-diisopropylethylamine, affording the corresponding 2-substituted 1,3-chlorohydrins in high yields and good enantioselectivities.
