  • The work in this thesis has been concerned with attempts to develop concise synthetic routes to the natural product mensacarcin, which is a novel polyfunctionalised hexahydroanthracene isolated from a strain of Streptomyces (Go C4/4). The synthetic strategy involves the construction of several novel highly substituted aromatic compounds, lithium halogen exchange following addition to aldehyde. Construction of tricyclic core of mensacarcin was achieved using intramoleculer Heck reaction.
