Total synthesis of (8R,6′R)-peridinin-5,8-furanoxide

Author affiliations


The first total synthesis of (8R,6′R)-peridinin-5,8-furanoxide, a C37 xanthophyll norcarotenoid, has been achieved. The key steps of the synthetic sequence are a Julia–Kocienski condensation and a late stage stereoretentive Stille cross-coupling of an iodoallene.
