A short syntesis of (±)-hirsutene involving the use of an organoselenium-mediated cyclization reaction

Abstract

A short synthesis of the sesquiterpene hirsutene (1) has developed in which the key step involved intramolecular cyclization of a β-oxoester to an alkene using N-phenylselenophthalimide and tin terrachloride.
