Whereas erythro-iodohydrin derivatives provided (E)-alkenes with high stereoselectivity upon treatment with titanium tetrachloride in the presence of allyltrimethylsilane, the corresponding threo isomers afforded (Z)-alkenes exclusively. The reaction was applied to the stereoretentive conversion of epoxides to alkenes.
