Total Synthesis of Clerobungin A via a Cascade Cyclization Reaction.


The first total synthesis of the novel cyclohexylethanoid natural product clerobungin A has been achieved in six steps and 14% overall yield starting from commercially available tyrosol. Key steps in this sequence include a bioinspired oxidative dearomatization of a phenol and a hemiacetalization/oxa-Michael cascade to form the tricyclic ring system… (More)
