The Diels–Alder reaction in steroid synthesis
This review explores the myriad ways in which the Diels-Alder reaction has been employed in the construction of the tetracyclic steroid nucleus. A systematic analysis of possible approaches highlights both the synthetic versatility of this ubiquitous reaction and also opportunities for new routes to fused tetracarbocyclic steroid frameworks. 1.1 Introduction 1.2 Classification of the Approaches 2.1 Installation of a Non-Skeletal Ring 2.2 Construction of the A-Ring 2.3 Construction of the B-Ring...[Show more]
