Green oxidations of furans—initiated by molecular oxygen—that give key natural product motifs

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this article, we explore how changes in the positioning of pendant hydroxyl functionalities in the photooxygenation substrate dramatically alter the course of furan oxidations that are initiated by singlet oxygen; and, how these different reactivities can be harnessed through cascade reaction sequences to access, rapidly and effectively, a broad range of important natural product motifs.
