Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A concise synthesis of rubioncolin B is described, which features an unprecedented intramolecular Diels-Alder reaction involving an ortho-quinone methide and a naphthofuran moiety. The ortho-quinone methide is generated through a surprisingly facile tautomerization of a para-quinone.
