Synthesis and confirmation of structure for the gibberellin GA131 (18-hydroxy-GA4)

Author affiliations

Abstract

A general method for the hydroxylation of the 18-methyl group in gibberellins has been developed, as demonstrated by the successful synthesis of 18-hydroxy GA4 (GA131) by means of a tandem process involving the conjugate addition of alkoxides to the α-methylene lactone moiety of a ring A-seco-gibberellin followed by an intramolecular aldol reaction.
