Predicting pathways for terpene formation from first principles – routes to known and new sesquiterpenes

Abstract

Application of the Artificial Force Induced Reaction (AFIR) method to the prediction of cyclization/rearrangement pathways for carbocation precursors to sesquiterpenes is described. This method captures many of the features revealed in previous studies as well as new ones, including a pathway to a sesquiterpene not yet isolated in nature that we suspect will be isolated in time.
