Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) A total synthesis of the bioactive naphthohydroquinone mollugin and the related naphthoquinone dimer microphyllaquinone is described. Both syntheses exploit the propensity of prenylated quinones to undergo tautomerization/oxa 6π-electrocyclizations.
