Total synthesis of sandresolide B and amphilectolide

Ingrid T. Chen, Irina Baitinger, Lucas Schreyer, Dirk Trauner

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The total synthesis of the diterpenoids sandresolide B and amphilectolide from a common furan building block is presented. Key steps include palladium-mediated carbonylation, lanthanide catalyzed ring closure, Myers alkylation, intramolecular Friedel-Crafts acylation, photooxygenation, and a Kornblum-DeLaMare rearrangement.
