A stereospecific photochemical ring contraction was used as the key step in the first total synthesis of the marine pseudopteranyl diterpene 11-gorgiacerol and its 11-epimer. The synthesis allowed the correction of the configurations that had been misassigned in the literature. In addition, some novel pseudopteranyl derivatives have been made. 
Light-mediated total synthesis of 17-deoxyprovidencin.
TLDR
An asymmetric synthesis of the diterpenoid 17-deoxyprovidencin is described and key steps include an aldol addition, a base-catalyzed Wipf-type furan formation, a Z-selective ring-closing metathesis for macrocyclization, and the stereoselective formation of two epoxides on the ring. Expand
The Total Synthesis of (-)-Scabrolide A.
TLDR
The first total synthesis of the norcembranoid diterpenoid scabrolide A is disclosed and an intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction and an enone-olefin cycloaddition/fragmentation sequence are employed to construct the fused linear carbocyclic core of the molecule. Expand
An Unexpected Transannular [4+2] Cycloaddition during the Total Synthesis of (+)‐Norcembrene 5
TLDR
During the synthesis of the diterpenoid (+)‐norcembrene 5 from simple building blocks, an unprecedented, highly oxidized pentacyclic structural motif was established from a furanocembranoid through transannular [4+2] cycloaddition. Expand
A strategy toward the synthesis of C13-oxidized cembrenolides.
TLDR
The orientation of the C13 alcohol was found to influence the cyclization mode of the cembranolide scaffold upon furan oxidation, leading to motifs reminiscent to bipinnatolide F, bielschowskysin, and verrillin. Expand

Abstract In studies towards a biomimetic synthesis of plumarellide 1, acid-catalysed rearrangement of the furanobutenolide-based acetonide 10b led to the ring system 15b in plumarellide together withExpand
Highly chemoselective synthesis of hindered amides via cobalt-catalyzed intermolecular oxidative hydroamidation
TLDR
This protocol is selective for terminal alkenes over groups that rapidly react under known carbocation amidation conditions such as tertiary alcohols, electron-richAlkenes, ketals, weak C−H bonds, and carboxylic acids. Expand
Photochemical formation of intricarene.
TLDR
This work raises the question whether intricarene is biosynthesized in the natural habitat of the corals or is an artefact formed during workup, and demonstrates that the determination of exact irradiation spectra, in combination with quantum chemical calculations, enables the rationalization of complex reaction pathways that involve multiple excited states.
