The most advanced approach, so far, to the asperparalines is developed. Consecutive oxidative and reductive radical cyclizations serve as the key steps to stereoselectively access the complex fully elaborated skeleton containing the cyclopentane and spiro-succinimide units.

First total synthesis of ent-asperparaline C and assignment of the absolute configuration of asperparaline C.

The first asymmetric total synthesis of a member of the asperparaline family was accomplished and the unknown absolute configuration of asperparaline C has been determined to be all-(S). The key

Tandem anionic oxy-Cope rearrangement/oxygenation reactions as a versatile method for approaching diverse scaffolds.

Tandem anionic oxy-Cope rearrangement/radical oxygenation reactions provide diverse  δ,ε-unsaturated  α-(aminoxy) carbonyl compounds that serve as convenient scaffolds to diverse compound classes.

Scalable Total Synthesis of (-)-Triptonide: Serendipitous Discovery of a Visible-Light-Promoted Olefin Coupling Initiated by Metal-Catalyzed Hydrogen Atom Transfer (MHAT).

An efficient and scalable total synthesis of (-)-triptonide is accomplished based on a metal-catalyzed hydrogen atom transfer (MHAT)-initiated radical cyclization. During the optimization of the key

Unique Stereoselective Homolytic C-O Bond Activation in Diketopiperazine-Derived Alkoxyamines by Adjacent Amide Pyramidalization.

These amino-acid-derived alkoxyamines are the first examples that exhibit a large thermodynamic preference for one diastereomer over the other upon thermal homolysis, and this allows controlled switching of configurations and configurational cycling.

Roles of Iron Complexes in Catalytic Radical Alkene Cross-Coupling: A Computational and Mechanistic Study.

A growing and useful class of alkene coupling reactions involve hydrogen atom transfer (HAT) from a metal-hydride species to an alkene to form a free radical, which is responsible for subsequent bond



Synthesis of the asperparaline core by a radical cascade.

A concise access to the pentacyclic core structure of the asperparalines is described. The key step is a radical cascade sequence comprised of a 1,6-hydrogen atom transfer followed by 6-exo-trig and

Concise enantioselective synthesis of ent-malbrancheamide B.

A concise enantioselective synthesis of the fungal metabolite ent-malbrancheamide B was accomplished through the union of a C-prenylated proline derivative and a substituted indole pyruvic acid SEM

Synthesis of bridged diketopiperazines by using the persistent radical effect and a formal synthesis of bicyclomycin.

A conceptually new and unified approach to diverse bridged diketopiperazines (DKPs) with widely variable ring sizes was developed by taking advantage of the persistent radical effect. This method

Unified approach to prenylated indole alkaloids: total syntheses of (–)-17-hydroxy-citrinalin B, (+)-stephacidin A, and (+)-notoamide I

The first strategy that provides reverse-prenylated indole alkaloids that bear a characteristic bicyclo[2.2.2]diazaoctane as well as those that lack this structural motif is reported.

Rapid access to polycyclic indolines related to the stephacidin alkaloids using a radical cascade.

A new and very rapid access to indoline intermediates useful for the synthesis of alkaloids related to the stephacidins has been established using a radical cascade process initiated from a

Total synthesis of (±)-hippolachnin A.

The first total synthesis of the marine polyketide (±)-hippolachnin A has been achieved in nine linear steps and an overall yield of 9%. Rapid access to the oxacyclobutapentalene core structure was

Total synthesis of (-)-depyranoversicolamide B.

The C3-isoprenylated indolyl diketopiperazine is prepared by an efficient reductive opening of the pyrrolo ring, and undergoes biomimetic Diels-Alder reaction to generate an anti-adduct as a sole stereoisomer.

A Concise Approach to Paxilline Indole Diterpenes.

Emindole SB, the simplest member of the paxilline indole diterpenes family, is synthesized in 11 steps from commercially available material to demonstrate the application of this approach.
