Activation of phenol derivatives with a hypervalent iodine reagent promotes the formation of bicyclic and tricyclic products via a cationic cyclization process. The method allows efficient one-step syntheses of scaffolds present in several natural products and occurs with total stereocontrol, governed by 1,3 allylic strain interactions and by the(More)
An unprecedented oxidative Prins transformation on phenol derivatives mediated by a hypervalent iodine reagent has been developed. This method allows a rapid access to highly substituted compact systems present in several natural products via a carbon-based addition on an aromatic core. Substitution at each ring position has been demonstrated, enabling(More)
