Putative biosynthetic cycloadditions en route to the diterpenoid (+)-chatancin

Putative biosynthetic cycloadditions en route to the diterpenoid (+)-chatancin
Density functional theory calculations were carried out in order to determine the viability of putative mechanistic pathways for formation of the diterpenoid (+)-chatancin. It was found that a cycloaddition involving a pyrylium ion would have a lower energetic barrier than previously proposed cycloadditions involving a 2H-pyran or furan. All three reactions are predicted to be concerted.
