Fluorous-Phase Approach to α-Hydroxytropolone Synthesis.

α-Hydroxytropolones (αHTs) are troponoids that demonstrate inhibition against an array of therapeutically significant targets, making them potential drug leads for several human diseases. We have utilized a recently discovered one-pot three-component oxidopyrylium cycloaddition in a solid-supported synthesis of αHTs. Though the procedure is time efficient… CONTINUE READING
