A [2 + 2 + 2]-cycloaddition approach toward 6-oxa-allocolchicinoids with apoptosis-inducing activity.

Abstract

Following an A --> ABC strategy, a new synthesis of 6-oxa-allocolchicinoids was developed exploiting a microwave-promoted Co- or Rh-catalyzed intramolecular [2 + 2 + 2]-cycloaddition (alkyne cyclotrimerization) as a key step. The approach opens a short and efficient access to a variety of novel compounds, some of which were found to exhibit significant and… (More)
