The total synthesis of (−)-cryptocaryol A

Author affiliations


A stereoselective total synthesis of (−)-cryptocaryol A (1) is described. Key features of the 17-step route include the use of three boron-mediated aldol reaction–reduction sequences to control all stereocenters and an Ando modification of the Horner–Wadsworth–Emmons olefination that permitted the installation of the Z double bond of the α-pyrone ring.
