Biomimetic Approaches Towards the Synthesis of Complex Dimeric Natural Products Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We present a selection of elegant and diverse biomimetic syntheses of complex natural product dimers. The dimerisation pathways discussed encompass the most prevalent strategies, including: Diels-Alder, Aldol, Mannich, conjugate addition, oxidative, radical and photochemical approaches; each underpinned through rational biosynthetic speculation.
