There is an error in the structure of compound 8 in eqn (3). Syn/anti-conformations in 8 are reversely identified and should be corrected below (syn : anti = 24 : 76).

The sentence in the third paragraph on page 5444 should read: “Fortunately, anti-epoxide 8, which is a key intermediate in the synthesis of optically active 1,3-diols with three consecutive chiral carbon centers,23 was obtained with a diastereomeric ratio of 24 : 76 with 97% ee (anti).”
The text in the ESI for 8 on page S15 should be: (S)-((1R,6R)-7-oxabicyclo[4.1.0]heptan-1-yl)(cyclohexyl)methanol (8): Chiral GC CHIRALDEX B-DM, 150 °C, tR = 11.7 min (major, S,R,R), 13.2 min (minor, R,S,S).
The authors would like to thank Prof. Dr. Toshio Nishikawa for a helpful discussion.

The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
