Due to their architectural intricacy and biological significance, the synthesis of polycyclic diterpenes and their biogenetically related alkaloids have been the subject of considerable interest over the last few decades, with progress including the impressive synthesis of several elusive targets. Despite tremendous efforts, conquering the unique structural(More)
A unified approach to four different (atisine, ajaconine, denudatine, and hetidine) diterpenoid alkaloid skeletons was developed and applied to the total synthesis of the natural products dihydroajaconine (2, atisine type) and gymnandine (4, denudatine type). The synthesis features a biogenetically inspired strategy that relies on C-H oxidation, aza-pinacol(More)
