Approach to the Synthesis of the C1-C11 and C14-C18 portion of Leucascandrolide A.
An asymmetric synthesis of the C1 to C11 and C14 to C18 fragments of the macrocyclic portion of the antibiotic Leucascandrolide A was achieved in 21 total steps from an achiral dienoate. The keyExpand

De novo enantioselective syntheses of galacto-sugars and deoxy sugars via the iterative dihydroxylation of dienoate.
An efficient route to various sugar lactones has been developed. Key to the overall transformation is the sequential osmium-catalyzed dihydroxylation of 2,4-dienoates. The simplest (one-step/racemic)Expand

An enantioselective synthesis of benzylidene-protected syn-3,5-dihydroxy carboxylate esters via osmium, palladium, and base catalysis.
[reaction: see text]. The enantioselective syntheses of several protected syn-3,5-dihydroxy carboxylic esters have been achieved from the corresponding achiral 1,3-dieneoates. The route relies uponExpand

An enantioselective synthesis of tarchonanthuslactone.
An enantioselective synthesis of tarchonanthuslactone has been achieved in eight steps from ethyl sorbate. The asymmetry of the route was introduced via a Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylationExpand

An enantioselective synthesis of cryptocarya diacetate.
[reaction: see text]. The enantioselective synthesis of cryptocarya diacetate has been achieved in 10 steps from ethyl sorbate. The route relies upon an enantio- and regioselective SharplessExpand

Asymmetric Iterative Hydration of Polyene Strategy to Cryptocaryols A and B
The development of two iterative asymmetric hydration approaches to the synthesis of all syn- and syn/anti/syn-1,3,5,7-tetraol motifs is described. These pseudo-symmetric products are syntheticExpand

Steenrod Algebra Module Maps from H ∗ (B( Z /p) n ) to H ∗ (B( Z /p) s )
Let Hon denote the mod-p cohomology of the classifying space B(Z/p)n as a module over the Steenrod algebra v . Adams, Gunawardena, and Miller have shown that the n x s matrices with entries in Z/pExpand
