Abstract

The tricyclic BCD substructure of the marine natural product nakadomarin A has been synthesised. The strategy utilised a key carbon–carbon bond-forming reaction between a furan and an N-acyliminium ion derived from a secondary thiolactam. In addition, a novel three-component coupling reaction between a thioamide, an allylic bromide and an isocyanate, leading to the establishment of two new stereogenic centres, is reported.
