Convergency and divergency as strategic elements in total synthesis: the total synthesis of (-)-drupacine and the formal total synthesis of (+/-)-cephalotaxine, (-)-cephalotaxine, and (+)-cephalotaxine



Convergency and divergency as strategic elements in total synthesis: the total synthesis of (-)-drupacine and the formal total synthesis of (+/-)-cephalotaxine, (-)-cephalotaxine, and (+)-cephalotaxine



Journal of Organic Chemistry 72(19): 7352-7358



A concise route toward the syntheses of (-)-drupacine and (+)- and (-)-cephalotaxine has been developed. The syntheses rely on Pd(II)-catalyzed aerobic oxidative heterocyclization chemistry, which was employed to rapidly construct an important spirocyclic amine intermediate. A dynamic beta-elimination/conjugate addition process was strategically applied to complete the first asymmetric total synthesis of (-)-drupacine.
