Acid-catalyzed ring expansion of chiral cyclopropyl and cyclobutyl derivatives for the synthesis of carbo- and heterocyclic compounds is reported. The starting materials have been successfully prepared by l-proline-catalyzed direct asymmetric aldol reactions of 1-phenylthiocycloalkyl carboxaldehydes with ketones.
