Total Synthesis of Dihydroclerodin from (R)-(_)-Carvone
The first total synthesis of the natural enantiomer of the insect-antifeedant dihydroclerodin (1) and lupulin C (40) has been achieved starting from (R)-(−)-carvone (2). In the applied strategy, theExpand

Enantioselective Synthesis of Functionalised Decalones by Robinson Annulation of Substituted Cyclohexanones, Derived from R-(−)-Carvone
Abstract The copper catalysed conjugate addition of methyl magnesium iodide to cyclohexenones and trapping of the enolate as its trimethylsilyl enol ether, followed by a trityl hexachloroantimonateExpand

Catalytic Oxidation of Homoallylalcohols to α-Alkoxytetrahydrofurans by a Pd-Nitro Complex and Molecular Oxygen
Abstract Various homoallylalcohols were highly regioselective oxidized with molecular oxygen at the terminal carbon to afford cyclic acetals (α-alkoxytetrahydrofurans) using PdNO 2 Cl(CH 3 CN) 2 as aExpand

Enantioselective synthesis of highly functionalised cyclohexanones starting from R-(−)-carvone
Copper (I) catalysed conjugate addition of methylmagnesium iodide to R-(−)-carvone and trapping the enolate as its trimethylsilyl enol ether, followed by a trityl perchlorate (TrClO4) catalysedExpand

The total synthesis of insect antifeedant (-)-dihydroclerodin starting from R-(-)-carvone
The first total synthesis of the natural enantiomer of the insect-antifeedant dihydroclerodin ( 1 ) and lupulin C ( 268 ) has been achieved in 18 and 17 steps respectively starting from R-(-)-carvoneExpand
Enantioselective Synthesis of Cadinanes starting from R-(-)- or S-(+)-Carvone.
A new enantioselective synthesis of cadinanes, using the Mukaiyama-Michael reaction, was developed starting from R-(−)- or S-(+)-carvone. This approach gives an easy and direct access to the cadinaneExpand
