Biomimetic Synthesis of (-)-Longithorone A


Biomimetic Synthesis of (-)-Longithorone A

Mark E Layton et al. J Am Chem Soc. .


An enantioseletive, biomimetic synthesis of (-)-longithorone A has been achieved using an intermolecular/transannular Diels-Alder sequence which provides some support for the proposed biosynthesis. The cycloaddition precursors were two [12]-paracyclophanes that were constructed with atropisomer control during ene-yne metathesis macrocyclizations.
