Chemoenzymatic routes to enantiomerically enriched and polyoxygenated perhydro-3,5a-methanoindeno[4,5-c]furans related to the tashironin class of sesquiterpenes
The alcohol 12, which is available in eight steps from the enzymatically derived cis-1,2-dihydrocatechol 8, engages in an intramolecular alkoxy radical-mediated remote functionalization reaction to form the tetrahydrofuran 13, thus establishing the perhydro-3,5a-methanoindeno[4,5-c]furan framework associated with the biologically active tashironins. Various manipulations of compound 13 and certain derivatives allow for the formation of compounds bearing strong structural resemblances to the...[Show more]
