Application of (4+3) cycloaddition strategies in the synthesis of natural products

Author affiliations

Abstract

(4+3) Cycloadditions have been widely applied in synthesis, and in this review article, we summarize some of the more recent applications, including formal (4+3) cycloadditions, in the synthesis of natural products. Many of these natural product target frameworks have cycloheptane subunits, for which the (4+3) cycloaddition is a convergent strategy for their assembly. Some natural product targets do not possess seven membered rings, and their syntheses have exploited the functional group endowed (4+3) cycloadducts resulting from these reactions, highlighting the utility of this methodology for the synthesis of a range of complex molecules.
