Enantioselective total synthesis of (−)-neovibsanin G and (−)-14-epi-neovibsanin G

Author affiliations


The first total synthesis of vibsane-type diterpenoids neovibsanin G and 14-epi-neovibsanin G has been achieved. Key to this endeavour was a late stage EtAlCl2 mediated skeletal rich cascade leading to the bicyclo[3.3.1]nonane core in one step.
