OChem: Synthesis problem

  1. Feb 15, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    First we start with ____ and immediately add ____ followed by ____ work up to give the new functional group____ . Then treatment with ____ and ____ will give____ (syn / anti) addition to give the ____ (stereochemistry)____ (functional group) . The final product can be formed by adding____ .

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I need to fill in the aragraph. My issue is mostly about how to add carbons in such a way that I can get the OH on that one carbon.. I thought about turning the alkyne into an alkynyl anion and then adding a ketone but that doesn't get the O in the right place. Any advice?
