Theoretical investigation of the rubicordifolin cascade

Jean Philip Lumb, Jamin L. Krinsky, Dirk Trauner

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The results of a theoretical investigation on the complex cascade reaction leading to the natural product rubicordifolin are reported. These computations analyze the discrete transformations that are required during the conversion of the vinyl naphthoquinone starting material into the natural product, including two pseudopericyclic cyclizations as well as a diastereoselective, hetero-Diels-Alder reaction.
