|Title:||A Strategy toward the Biomimetic Synthesis of (±)-Morusalbanol A Pentamethyl Ether||Authors:||Tee, J.T.
|Issue Date:||2016||Journal:||Synthesis (Germany) Volume 48, Issue 14, 15 July 2016, Article number ss-2015-t0694-op, Pages 2263-2270||Abstract:||A strategy toward the biomimetic synthesis of morusalbanol A pentamethyl ether is described. The synthesis is based on a hydrogen-bond-assisted Diels-Alder cycloaddition between a dehydroprenyl diene and a chalcone dienophile. Selective cleavage of the ortho-methyl ether of the resulting cycloadduct allows rotation of the C3-C21 bond and subsequent intramolecular cyclization affords the pentamethyl ether of (±)-morusalbanol A. As with the natural product, morusalbanol A, a number of key proton and carbon signals are absent in the NMR spectra of the title product. © Georg Thieme Verlag Stuttgart New York.||DOI:||10.1055/s-0035-1560434|
