Total Synthesis of (±)-Vibsanin E

Schwartz, Brett; Denton, Justin R; Davies, Huw ML; Williams, Craig


Vibsanin E (1), a structurally rare complex diterpene, consisting of a compact 3-oxatricyclo[,10] tridecane core and an unprecedented 3,3-dimethylacroyl enol ester functional group, formulate a considerable synthetic challenge. Williams and Davies failed to independently synthesize this nemesis, however, a 'two heads are better than one' approach delivered the first total synthesis of the molecule, since its diamond aniversary isolation.
