A short stereoselective synthesis of (+)-(6R,2'S)-cryptocaryalactone was successfully completed. Key steps included the application of Carreira's asymmetric alkynylation reaction to form a propargylic alcohol and subsequently lactone formation using the powerful ring-closing metathesis reaction.
A convergent stereoselective total synthesis of decarestrictine I (1) and botryolide B (1a) invoking a common synthetic strategy is reported. The key steps are: ring-closing metathesis of epoxy dienoic esters obtained through the Yamaguchi esterification of their respective intermediates to furnish the respective Z-macrocycles (2 and 2a) which were further… (More)
