C-18 Hydroxylation of gibberellins

Author affiliations


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