Total synthesis of (±)-rhazinal using novel palladium-catalyzed cyclizations

Alfred L. Bowie, Dirk Trauner

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A concise synthesis of (±)-rhazinal that hinges on novel oxidative Heck cyclizations and palladium- catalyzed direct couplings is described. An X-ray structure of N-MOM-rhazinal, which provides insight into the conformation of the strained 9-membered lactam ring, is described.
