Total Synthesis of (+)-Aplykurodinone-1
Bo Xu, Fayang G. Qiu, Tingzhong Wang, Wen Xun
Starting from (R)-citronellic acid and (R)-seudenol, the total synthesis of (+)-aplykurodinone-1, a highly degraded marine steroid, has been achieved in 11 steps and in 19% overall yield with excellent stereochemical control. In addition to the features such as an Ireland–Claisen rearrangement, an intramolecular carbonyl–ene cyclization, and an intramolecular Michael addition, the present synthetic strategy is accomplished without the use of protecting groups.
