We present a mild and efficient method for the completely regioselective alcoholysis of styrene oxides utilizing a cooperative Brønsted acid-type organocatalytic system comprised of mandelic acid (1 mol %) and N,N'-bis-[3,5-bis-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-thiourea (1 mol %). Various styrene oxides are readily transformed...
