Total synthesis of ascididemin via anionic cascade ring closure

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

A new and convergent synthesis of ascididemin is presented. Using an anionic cascade ring closure as the key step, this natural product is obtained in 45% overall yield in just 6 steps starting from 2'-fluoroacetophenone. This new approach was extended to the synthesis of a new isomer of ascididemin.
