Progress Toward the Total Synthesis of Vinigrol and Hibarimicin B
Vinigrol is a structurally unique diterpenoid natural product featuring a tricyclo[126.96.36.199.4a,8a]tetradecene carbon skeleton containing eight contiguous stereocenters and a challenging oxygenation pattern. Vinigrol has ...
On the Development of Pseudoephenamine and Its Applications in Asymmetric Synthesis
Pseudoephedrine is well established as a chiral auxiliary in the alkylation of amide enolates to form tertiary and quaternary carbon stereocenters. However, due to its facile transformation into the illegal narcotic ...
Component-Based Syntheses of Trioxacarcins
The trioxacarcins are structurally complex, highly oxygenated bacterial isolates that potently inhibit the growth of human cancer cells in culture as a consequence of their ability to alkylate guanosine residues of duplex ...
Progress Toward the Total Synthesis of the Lomaiviticins and a Biomimetic Unified Strategy for the Synthesis of 7-Membered Ring-Containing Lycopodium Alkaloids
Lomaiviticin A (1) and B (2) are natural products with remarkably complex C2-symmetric structures and potent antiproliferative properties. Achieving total syntheses of 1 and 2 has been a long-standing project in the Shair ...
