Synthetic Studies on Amaryllidaceae and Other Terrestrially Derived Alkaloids

Banwell, Martin; Gao, Yuqian (Nadia); Schwartz, Brett; White, Lorenzo


The total syntheses of a wide range of terrestrially derived alkaloids, especially ones isolated from members of the Amaryllidaceae family, are described. Two recurring themes associated with these syntheses are the use of two types of building blocks, namely ring-fused cyclopropanes, especially geminally-dihalogenated ones, and enzymatically derived cis-1,2- dihydrocatechols. These have often served as precursors to 2-or 3-halogenated 2-cyclohexen-1-ols that are themselves engaged in...[Show more]
