# Enolate ion opening an epoxide?

Does anyone know if it is possible to open an epoxide and do a 2-C extension using an enolate ion, say, of acetone? Here's an example of what I mean:

Based on what I know of enolate chemistry, this shouldn't be problematic, but I've never seen it.

I have done some preliminary literature searching and checked out masterorganicchemistry.com, etc. but have not been able to find anything about this.

Abstract: We report here that (1) enolate anions of five- to seven-membered cycloalkanones nucleophilically open cyclopentene and cyclohexene oxides in 57−76% yields and with 4−8:1 diastereoselectivity; (2) enolate anions formed regiospecifically via kinetic deprotonation of 2-cyclohexenone and 2-cycloheptenone open cyclohexene oxide in 60−62% yields and with 32−95:1 diastereoselectivity; and (3) an aryl methyl ketone enolate anion opens a monosubstituted epoxide as the key step in a short synthesis of the $$\gamma$$-hydroxyketone (GHK) aglycon of the natural product curculigine.
