Beta-Keto Sulfoxide reduction-intramolecular delivery

diastereoisomer

The transition state is a six-membered chair with the toluyl group equatorial. This is the least hindered of the 4 possible transition states.

The stereochemistry of the reaction is controlled by the sulfoxide. In the absence of the ZnCl2, the hydride transfer occurs intramolecularly yielding the R,S enantiomer.
