Abstract

In our new approach to the anticancer agent roseophilin (1), a concise, stereocontrolled synthesis of the bicyclic model system 16 was achieved. Key steps include a diastereoselective Ireland-Claisen rearrangement and a stereoselective construction of the hexahydro-cyclopenta[b]pyrrol-6-one core via a tandem intramolecular aza-Wittig/[3+2]-cycloaddition sequence

Item Type: Article
Additional Information: EMEV did virtually all the synthetic work and co wrote the paper. This paper features an original tandem aza-Wittig / 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition to assemble bicyclic cores with full control over four chiral centers. This is currently applied to a route towards the total synthesis of the anticancer agent roseophilin.
