Abstract. Isoprene epoxydiol (IEPOX) isomers are key gas-phase intermediates of isoprene atmospheric oxidation. Secondary organic aerosols derived from such intermediates have important impacts on air quality and health. We report here convergent and unambiguous pathways developed for the synthesis of isomeric IEPOX species and the rearrangement products cis- and trans-3-methyl-3,4-dihydroxytetrahydrofuran in good yield. The availability of such compounds is necessary to expedite research on isoprene atmospheric oxidation mechanisms and subsequent aerosol formation as well as the toxicological properties of the aerosols.
