Ring opening with organometallic reagents of [2.2.2]-acylnitroso cycloadducts, including an enantioselective kinetic resolution of these compounds, has been accomplished for the first time. By the careful choice of reaction conditions, it was possible to obtain new cyclohexenyl hydroxamic acids with complete anti-stereoselectivity and a nice regioalternating control. A remarkable effect of the halogen of the Grignard reagent was observed during ring opening.
