Enantioselective synthesis of dictyoceratin-A (smenospondiol) and -C, hypoxia-selective growth inhibitors from marine sponge.

Total syntheses of (+)-dictyoceratin-C (1) and (+)-dictyoceratin-A (smenospondiol) (2), hypoxia-selective growth inhibitors isolated from marine sponge, were executed. The absolute stereochemistry of the each compound was determined through the enantioselective total syntheses of them. It revealed that the unnatural enantiomers of them also exhibited the… (More)
