A new synthetic methodology was developed to synthesize two chosen lignans, galbulin and cagayanin, with the intent of applying this synthetic scheme for the synthesis of stnicturally similar lignans. The Stobbe condensation was ideally suited for generating the starting materials for consûucting the aryItetralin skeleton, Two successive Stobbe condensations were executed to generate the starting dibenzylidenesuccinates. It was discovered that triflic acid-catalyzed cyclization of these…
