Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The total synthesis of smenochromene D, an unusual ansa-terpenoid is described. The synthesis features an unprecedented macrocyclization proceeding through a biomimetic electrocyclization. The enantiomeric relationship between smenochromene D and likonide B is established.
