Hexamethylphosphorous triamide (HMPT) and other phosphoramidites and phosphites have been found to be efficient catalysts for the Michael reaction of alkenones and alkynones with malonates, alpha-cyano esters, beta-keto esters, and nitro compounds. The relatively nontoxic, easily hydrolyzed HMPT catalyzes the Michael reaction within seconds at room(More)
[reaction: see text] The putative structure of the naturally occurring clerodane diterpenoid (+/-)-sacacarin has been prepared in only 10 steps, six of which are C-C bond-forming steps, in a chemo-, regio-, and diastereoselective manner. The key part of the synthesis is the double annulation (double Michael, Pinner, and Dieckmann reaction) of a tethered(More)
