[reaction: see text] A convergent synthesis of the right-hand half of ciguatoxin (the HIJKLM ring system) has been achieved with complete stereocontrol in the introduction of the stereocenters on the eight-membered I ring. Key steps are Sonogashira coupling, dicobalt complexation, intramolecular conjugate addition, and hydrogenation of an endo-olefin to… (More)
For the total synthesis of novel cyclodepsipeptide homophymine A, (2R,3R,4R)-2-amino-3-hydroxy-4,5-dimethylhexanoic acid was successfully synthesized by Evans' asymmetric alkylation and the anti-selective asymmetric hydrogenation of a chiral α-amino-β-keto ester as the key steps.
We developed a novel asymmetric synthetic method for multisubstituted 9,10-dihydrophenanthrenes based on the Pd-catalyzed asymmetric intramolecular Friedel-Crafts allylic alkylation of phenols, which produces 10-vinyl or 10-isopropenyl chiral 9,10-dihydrophenanthrene derivatives in high yield with up to 94% ee.
The asymmetric aziridination of cyclic enones with N-tosyloxycarbamates, using N-neopentyl 1,2-diphenylethylenediamine as a catalyst, and its application to the formal total synthesis of (-)-agelastatin A, using a one-pot silylation-selenylation procedure and the regioselective aziridine-opening by an azide anion as key steps, are described.
Something fishy: Ciguatoxin (see structure) is one of the principal toxins involved in ciguatera poisoning and the target of a total synthesis involving the coupling of three segments. The key transformations in this synthesis feature acetylene-dicobalthexacarbonyl complexation.
