Treatment of 2-methylphenols with chloro(diphenyl)-λ-iodane led to their regioselective dearomatizing 2-phenylation into cyclohexa-2,4-dienone derivatives via a proposed ligand coupling reaction. In the same vein of investigation, treatment of 2-methylanilines with the λ-iodane 2-iodoxybenzoic acid IBX reagent led to their regioselective dearomatization(More)
SIBX, the nonexplosive formulation of the lambda5-iodane 2-iodoxybenzioc acid (IBX), safely and efficiently mediates the hydroxylative dearomatization of various 2-alkylphenols and napthols into orthoquinols or their [4 + 2] cyclodimers. Reactions are typically run at room temperature using SIBX as a suspension in THF. Using these conditions, natural(More)
Treatment of 2-methylphenols with chloro(diphenyl)-lambda(3)-iodane led to their regioselective dearomatizing 2-phenylation into cyclohexa-2,4-dienone derivatives via a proposed ligand coupling reaction. In the same vein of investigation, treatment of 2-methylanilines with the lambda(5)-iodane 2-iodoxybenzoic acid IBX reagent led to their regioselective(More)
An asymmetric synthesis of an advanced tetracyclic intermediate toward the synthesis of bielschowskysin (1) is described. A biomimetic [2 + 2]-photocyclization was used to establish the cyclobutane core of bielschowskysin. Macrocyclization under Heck conditions led to an unprecedented carbo-oxygenation of a 1,1-disubstituted double bond.
The first total synthesis of the natural nondimerizing o-quinol (+)-wasabidienone B1 was achieved from commercially available 1,3,5-trimethoxybenzene. The key dearomatizing transformation was efficiently accomplished via a hydroxylative phenol dearomatization reaction using the stabilized lambda(5)-iodane reagent IBX (SIBX). (+)-Wasabidienone B1 was then(More)
