Expedient stereoselective synthesis of coronafacic acid through intramolecular Diels-Alder cyclization.


A stereoselective synthesis of coronafacic acid, a natural component of the phytotoxin coronatin, was achieved using an intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction as the key step. The triene precursor bearing a substituted diene and a vinylketone as dienophile was synthesized and then tested in the thermal intramolecular cyclization. We have devised a new strategy… (More)
