Concise asymmetric total synthesis of (−)-patchouli alcohol

Author affiliations

Abstract

The asymmetric total synthesis of (−)-patchouli alcohol was accomplished in a concise manner. Key reactions include a highly diastereo- and enantioselective formal organocatalytic [4 + 2] cycloaddition reaction, a radical denitration reaction, and an oxidative carboxylation reaction. The formal synthesis of norpatchoulenol was achieved as well.
