Sequential catalysis for stereoselective synthesis of complex polyketides
Covering: the literature up to 2012
This review presents recent advances in sequential catalytic methods developed in our group for the rapid and stereoselective synthesis of key structural features of complex polyketides. These include a novel domino reaction, based on a combination of a nucleophilic addition and a Tsuji–Trost reaction, an innovative sequence relying on an oxidative diyne cyclization and regioselective opening, as well as sequential cross coupling strategies. The design and scope of these methods are discussed and applications in complex target syntheses presented.
