Double Diels-Alder reactions of linear conjugated tetraenes

Turner, Craig; Paddon-Row, Michael; Willis, Anthony; Sherburn, Michael


(Chemical Equation Presented) Linear conjugated tetraenes are shown to participate effectively as bis-dienes in sequences involving either two intermolecular Diels-Alder reactions or an intramolecular followed by an intermolecular Diels-Alder reaction. Thus, simple tetraenol 1 is transformed into tetracyclic products 5, 6, and 9 in high yielding and highly stereoselective sequences with maleic anhydride involving the formation of three rings, four C-C bonds and one C-O bond, and eight...[Show more]
