Hydrogenolysis by lithium aluminum hydride-aluminium chloride of ether solutions of camphor ethylene ketal and norcamphor ethylene ketal.

The LiAlH4-AlCl2 reductive cleavage of norcamphor ethylene ketal yields 2-(2-endo-norbornyloxy)ethanol in >=98% yield, whereas the similar redn. of camphor ethylene ketal gives 2-(2-isobornyloxy)ethanol in 78% yield and 2-(2-bornyloxy)ethanol in 22% yield. These are the products arising from steric...
