Total synthesis of gambierol: subunit coupling and completion.


The preceding manuscript detailed our synthesis of the gambierol A-C and F-H ring precursors. Reported herein is a description of the coupling of the two precursors and the conversion of the coupled material into gambierol. Coupling of the subunits involved ester formation, enol ether RCM, and mixed thioketal formation and reduction. By employing this… (More)
