Abstract

original image

Prostaglandine regulieren eine Bandbreite von physiologischen Prozessen, und einige ihrer Derivate werden als Wirkstoffe eingesetzt – ihre Synthese erforderte bislang aber viele Stufen. Die Titelverbindungen wurden unter Verwendung eines kürzlich entwickelten Organokatalysators mithilfe effizienter Eintopfverfahren in wenigen Synthesestufen synthetisiert.
