(E)-1-benzyloxy-2,3-epoxyalkanes (4) underwent stereoselective rearrangement in the presence of LIDAKOR reagent and large excess of butyllithium producing (Z)-alkendiols (7) at ambident temperature. The same reaction serves anti oxetanes (6) at -75 °C which can also rearrange to 7 when the temperature arises.
