The diastereoselective hydroformylation of 2-methyl-1-alken-3-ol and 5-t-butyl-2-methylene-cyclohexanol derivatives gave threo- and erythroy-γ-hydroxyalkanal derivatives in ratios up to 82:18, contrary to the results observed for hydroxy-directed hydrogenation of the corresponding allylic alcohols.
