Radical cyclization of β-alkoxyacrylates: Synthesis of a C2-symmetric, L-shaped molecule with four fused tetrahydropyran rings

Authors


Abstract

A C2-symmetric, L-shaped tetracycle with four fused tetrahydropyran rings was synthesized from (3R, 4R)-1, 6-dibenzoyloxy-hexane-3, 4-diol employing radical cyclization reactions of β-alkoxyacrylates. Chirality 12:360–361, 2000. © 2000 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
