An expedient formal total synthesis of (-)-diazonamide A via a powerful, stereoselective O-aryl to C-aryl migration to form the C10 quaternary center.


During the course of studies on the synthesis of diazonamide A 1, an unusual O-aryl into C-aryl rearrangement was discovered that allows partial control of the absolute stereochemistry of the C-10 quaternary stereogenic center. Treatment of 30 with TBAF/THF gave the O-tyrosine ethers 31 and 32 (1:1), which on heating each separately in chloroform at reflux… (More)
