Expedient synthesis of (±)-bipinnatin J

Paul A. Roethle, Dirk Trauner

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A nine-step, stereoselective synthesis of bipinnatin J is described, which features a ruthenium-catalyzed Alder-ene reaction, a Stille cross coupling, and an intramolecular Nozaki-Hiyama-Kishi allylation as key steps. The biosynthetic relationship between bipinnatin J and complex polycyclic diterpenes isolated from gorgonian corals is discussed.
