Rapid stereoselective access to the tetracyclic core of puupehenone and related sponge metabolites using metal-free radical cyclisations of cyclohexenyl-substituted 3-bromochroman-4-ones.Pritchard, R.P.; Sheldrake, Helen M.; Taylor, I.Z.; Wallace, T.W. (Elsevier, 23/06/2008)The tetracyclic nucleus of puupehenone, 15-oxopuupehenol and other sesquiterpene¿phenol natural products can be assembled stereoselectively in three steps, the last of these being the 6-endo-trig cyclisation of an alpha-keto radical generated from a substituted 2-(2-cyclohexenyl)ethyl 3-bromo-4-chromanone under metal-free conditions.
